Did further research on the oil injection.  Seems to be an alarm system for oil injection problems.  The 2 stroke oil is pumped by a crankcase pressure oil pump into a small oil tank on the motor.  There is a float that rings an alarm if it is not completely full.

 

The plastic gear drives an oil pump that mixes the gas and oil in the fuel line prior to the carbs.  A reed switch sends pulses to the alarm system when the pump is in normal operation.

 

I disconnected the tank float and then the reed switch.  Both gave an alarm. 

I am now running injection and trust the system will work or alarm properly if it fails.

Dun caught a bass already....................

 

 

Update on the Etec...............its running.
