True all that. Still:

The fuel starvation example was simply that, an example of an engine failure not due to any guts of the engine flying off the crankcase. That is: the engine quit, but itīs still a perfectly functional one IF you find/know the external reason that made it quit and can fix it now (fuel, switching off the magnetos with your knee, or pick any other choice).

Then, I had completely forgotten about the stopped prop. That would certainly invalidate the possibility of it being one of those examples.

The Continental 520's Iīve flown always liked some pump to restart after maybe one minute off. So, if #1 existed, and I knew it was the fuel, *I* would have used some pump to make things happen now. Thinking of it for a second, first thing you'd have to do would be switching to the correct tank, with the prop turning and already sucking from there before you had time to reach the pump. If it had to start, it should have by that time. I could very well be completely wrong in all that.

If #1 existed and it was not the fuel, I wouldnīt, since it'd had been sucking all the time and it could be flooded already.

Then, I believe using some pump, selecting another tank or turning the magnetos on is far from "stupid pilot tricks". Itīs simply trying to restart. 1000 ft give you some time to spare, after getting ready for a forced landing and once youīre flying for it. Using some of that time trying to fix what was wrong, or even trying to restore some partial power if it was a bigger problem, is not a trick, much less stupid, but in my humble opinion, the sensible choice.

EDIT: translated from awful gibberish to... well, to another kind of Spanglish gibberish, I suppose <g>

EDIT II: oh yeah, the POH. One of my home bases is above 7000ft and I work "in the hills" from there, so those engines have hardly ever seen full mixture. POH's should always be taken with a pound of salt.
