oil line pop-off solution
hey guys. after doing some research and finding that some people have had bad luck with their oil lines "popping-off" from the carbs, i decided to do some good old fashioned preventative maintenance and come up with my own solution so that i dont end up with a seized piston. i figured a couple of small hose clamps from the hardware store would do the job. what do you guys think??
i was able to do this with only having to take the main part of the exhaust out. its a tight fit with your hands in there but it can be done. i used a 1/4"-drive socket wrench with a long socket to reach the clamp on the forward-most oil line. after i clamped each line i tried to pull it off to make sure they were steadfast, which they were...they didnt budge. im sure some of you have done something similar to this but i just wanted to share. all in all it took about 20 mins after getting the exhaust out. enjoy!

Just having fun, but I also try to give good advice too. Seriously, there's nothing good about oil injection. Have you considered going premix?

The guys I knew who insisted on keeping the oil injection went with oetiker clamps. There are a few threads around here on them.
