I ran out of gas the other day. I switched to the reserve to find out that the reserve was already empty. Any ideas on how I can diagnose this problem and what might be wrong?

Must be talking about an older carb'd 400, yeah?

Check the parts fiche for what's in your tank, both ports have the same identical stuff in 'em, just at slightly different levels. That's all there is to it.

I'm thinking the reserve port pickup components have disintegrated in the tank

Just occurred to me, he might've criss-crossed the lines to the petcock at some point. He's been pulling from the lower port on the tank all this time, while the petcock's reading "ON". So when he ran out of gas, he really ran out of gas ;)

Either way, should be pretty easy to figure out
