    The throttle lever should stay in place at whatever RPM you desire. There is a spring that can be adjusted or replaced, on a few I was able to tighten the nut a bit where the lever connects to the throttle rod to tighten it.

    JD 303 Hydraulic/Trans Fluid or equivalent is all you need. (It must be a combination of the 2, not just straight hydraulic fluid.)

    On my YM240 the hard rubber friction disc recently broke in half and fell out. I made a replacement from an old inner tube patch kit that didn't work at all - it became gummy and was both stiff and wouldn't hold rpm. A couple of weeks ago I made another replacement from rubber gasketing - maybe neoprene? that works fine. I should have ordered a replacement from Hoye and avoided the aggravation of that gummy one.
