1) The prop will NOT stop with fuel exhaustion.

2) If the prop has stopped, the engine is seized or the pilot has pulled the nose up beyond the stall (a stupid pilot trick if I ever heard one at 1000 feet AGL and the idiot will be immediately assessed ten demerits to be awarded at his funeral.)

3) If #1 exists, simply switch tanks and do NOTHING else. If you hit the boost pump or other actions you will likely flood it and it may not restart.

4) If #2 exists, you have NO need to hunt for fuel--reverse the stupid pilot trick (which is UNLIKELY at 1000 AGL) and/or LAND into the softest spot readily available.

All of that said, IF the prop has stopped in cruise with fuel exhaustion (which it won't) simply lower the nose and it will begin turning again. DO NOTHING but switch to a tank with fuel. If it was running when the fuel ran out, it will run again when the fuel is returned.

Switching tanks, going full rich, and hitting the boost pump as the POH recommends will almost certainly result in a flooded condition and no restart. <head-shaking-mode>

It's not the miles you've traveled; it's the stops you've made.
