if you put in 60:1 in a 2 cycle engine that only takes 50:1 what would happen?

If you fail the properly measure the ratio, and instead of putting 50:1 in your 2 cycle engine you put 60:1 or 70:1 what would happen?

    at some point, there won't be enough oil in the mix and the engine will run hotter and faster than designed to withstand ... at that point, you'll either blow the head gasket or blow a hole in the cylinder head -- either requires a rebuild or else you junk the engine.  -- Grampa
