Re: oil gas mixture
How old is the motor? Engines back in the 60's were a 24/1 mix, 70's and 80's were 50/1 mix.
In the late 80's they started using the VRO system where the oil mixed automatically with the fuel and the rate of mixture varied depending on the load on the engine.
Personally I would not worry about being a little heavy on the oil since the worst that happens is you may need to clean/replace plugs during the year. Never saw an engine get scuffed cylinder walls from too much oil.
My ability to remember lyrics from songs of the 60's far exceed my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen
