OK, Finally Changing from Oil Pump to Premix, Question
OK, after losing an engine due to an oil line coming off, and seeing that SBT recommends premixing, I finally decided to ditch the pump.
So, do I leave the pump attached and remove the lines and cable, plug the ones on the carbs, etc??
Also if I drain all the oil from the tank will a low level alarm prevent the engine from running, and if so do I remove the level sensor and modify it to stay showing full??
If I remove the pump, how do I cover the hole in the front of the engine cover.

Do a search, there are several threads that explain it all.

You need to get an oil injection block off plate and remove the oil pump/lines.There is a line that comes off the oil tank towards the bottom,facing the motor.You can drain the oil into a container.Dont let it overfill,or spill.Big time mess.

Get the parts from Carl at ISLAND......He keeps all block off parts in stock!
You add a small jumper resistor to the connector and all is well. You dont have to rig the sending unit and take everything apart. Installing the jumper takes a whole 10 seconds and you done!
