I also capped the carb with a cap from Autozone, twice, and both times it rotted within a couple of months, so I finally stuck a short piece of vacuum hose on it, stuck a screw in the other end, and stuck it up under the tank. I'm sure there must be better caps out there. I used a snap in rubber plug in the hole in the airbox, found it at work, not sure what it was meant for, but it fit perfectly. I used rubber caps from Pep Boys designed to cap off heater hose fittings on cars for the reed valve covers, and noticed that they are also slightly cracked after about 2 years. I'm too cheap to buy real coasters, so I will get some new caps, about $2, and just keep them soaked in ArmorAll. Jerry.
