Plugging the exhaust also creates a vacuum which may suck dirt from your air filter into your engine...I learned long ago that is not a good way to shut your engine down..pinch line, or stop flywheel..Never plug exhaust.

For the after run oil, the safest easiest way I have found is to take the manifold off and put a couple of drops in the rear exhaust port. I do a few drops with the piston at TDC and a few at BDC and then spin it good on the box..No dirt from the glow plug falls in your engine, and you dont need to chance the o-rings in the carb
nothing to see here................................
