i remember mowing on my IH cub ( 66 model, 12v ) one day. I ran out of gas and she rolled to a stop.. i turned her off, and walked.. got gas.. fueld her, got back on, and without thinkin gmuch turned her on and hit the starter. had left her in gear and pto engaged.. normally she takes 3-4 revs and some choke to start. this time started on half a rev and no choke and i was 'mowing' before i knew it. glad I wasn't at the end of a row or up against a fence.
The safety start ont he ford spoiled me!
