Ooops, didn't see OF's reply before posting mine. But to answer
this latest question, I think oldfart was talking about the hardware
to plug the various fittings where the oil tank supply lines
previously ran. On my son's former DT-80 I just found the appropriate
sized bolt and washer and screwed it into place.
Running it for 15 minutes on 40:1 ain't bad so long as you plugged
any holes previously occupied by oil the lines.
