When I unloaded my 314 after the Chillicothe, MO show last weekend, it barely ran well enough to get it to the shed! Today, assuming the problem was the fuel filter, I replaced it. Started it up, ran fine for a little bit, sputtered & died. I checked the gas tank, full! THEN, I turned the gas on, it started & ran fine!!! I use one of the fuel selector switches from a JD with the reserve tube in the tank as a shut-off.

I've stayed away from mirrors the rest of the day, afraid of the two-word phrase that might be showing on my forehead!  :wallbanging:   ~~ Lowell

DANG!!!  I was all excited and thought for a minute I was gonna get to do a little brand bashing - but this is clearly a case of operator error.

Lowell, I've been there and done the same thing, glad you didn't see any words on your fore head.

At one time or another we've all done something similar.  Thanks for taking the pressure off the rest of us for a while.  :D  Rick

Been there and done the same thing... with my antique tractor.  Week before a show.  I sweated bullets and stayed up late nights trying to solve a great big ol' case of operator stupidity.  I usually turned the fuel off after I cut the tractor off.  One night I guess I didn't, and being a critter of habit I turned it "on" when I started the machine... except this time "on" was off.

I have to admit to something similar. Couldn't figure out why the tractor would move either direction. Finally figured out it was in neutral! Doh!
