    Unhappy Pulled a "stupid" yesterday.

    Checked oil level, added a bit, forgot to tighten the cap.

    So now I have one on order, and my weekend is shot.

    tweaked carb (127.5 jet, 0.019 needle shim, idle screw @2.25),

    Rubbermaid "Action Packer" on homemade brackets

    Get a cap off a milk jug or something, find some other plastic crap, wedge it all on top of there, tape the crap out of it, done!

    For future ref. I would bet a cap from a B&S or Tecumseth lawn mower engine would work for a temp fix.

    Good luck with the spare stash, I have dozens of different spare items that I can never seem to find when needed. So then I buy more spares, someone needs to keep the economy growing.

    I resemble that remark Trailmaster!

    I need a spare garage just to store all the spare stuff I have and maybe even a spare wife to help me locate stuff when I need it. Oh Wait, skip the second wife part, I'll just look longer.
