If autolube it should have straight gas in tank and snomobile mixing oil in the oil reservoir and an oil pump feeds the cylinder and cases.
Thanks for the information, but just as I stated in the first line of my original post, I'm not "new" to vintage 2 strokes. I've owned/ridden/rebuilt many, and understand the mechanics

The bike is premix from the factory, and again, as stated previously, I'm mixing at the FACTORY RECOMMENDED 20:1 (during break-in they recommend 15:1)
People tell me I have a motorcycle problem. I tell them, I may have problems, but motorcycles are the solution.
