http://saito-engines.info is much better than the manual.

Yes OS has them too. look here on page 8.

Two strokes use the vaccuum of the case to suck fuel and air into the chamber. They perry pumps use the positive and negative pressure bursts to run a piston and provide further pressurization.

I have never used a third party pump on a 4 stroke. But OS and YS both use them on production engines with great success.

On the OS FS70II and FS91II the crankcase vent is connected via a tubing to a nipple on the intake manifold, so all the "mess" goes back into the engine. In fact it's sucked thus improving engine lubrication.

The HP VT series four-strokes have an even more interesting lubrication system. They have a nipple on the muffler which is used to trap and route oil from exhaust into the moving bits in the head.

Because this engine's top-end is reliant on this oil for proper lubrication, you have to use castor oil -- synthetic simply burns up and produces no exhaust residue.

It's a cunning idea and seems to work very well. I've got quite a few hours on my VT21 now and desite the fact that it's a rotary-valve engine, there's no wear to speak of in the head area.

If you hook a perry pump to the oil drain nipple , the oil will have no were to go, it will build up , first slowing the motor and makeing starting difficult.
the oil needs to drain!!!
