    this is from post by dave hx rxp
    If you decide to go to premix by removing the Oil Pump and capping it off with a Block Off kit then you need to run a large Oil Line between the Rotary Valve Oil Bath IN and OUT nipples under the Carbs/Exhaust. Then you can remove the Oil Tank. The Oil Bath line needs to have a 2" air gap at the top for Oil expansion when hot. The counterbalance shaft gets its lubrication preliminarily from an oil fill and then ongoing from a vent on the rear cylinder which the pre-mix will provide.
