Default Engine and Carb caps

Does anyone have a link for the caps that go over the carbs, and the exhaust port on the engine. I've seen em, but don't know where to get em. I'd really like to plug up those holes for engine cleaning and storage. .21 and .28. Thanks

You can go to VatoZone and pick up some vacuum line caps used on cars.

The foam ear plugs work great. I cut the tip off so they don't get cut by crank or piston. Don't forget to plug the fuel line.

Default Bustin Caps son.

I went to ace hardware and the guy that worked there had a pile of screw caps tha come on specialzed bolts they sell I got some of the grey ones I believe 1/2" or so they fit right over the carb tight and the exaust was the same only larger I will check. The ace hardware man gave me enough for three engines and pipes and they were FREE (Ace hardware guy Rocks) take your engine in and tell them your looking for screw protectors off some bolts. Darrin
