    Pre MIX conversion

    Can someone fill me in on what lubricates the crank if I pull the oil pump and convert to Premix?

    The Oil and Gas mixture. Now, that you are premix, the lubrication is already mixed in the fuel. This condensed oil then migrates to lubricate the friction surfaces of the crank bearings, as well as some of it being pulled into combustion chamber for lubricating and sealing the rings.

    Yup! the fine atomized mist of fuel and oil cools and lubricates the bearings and wear surfaces, just like it did when it was injected however your taking multiple failure points out of the equation by premixing
