After reading here about using a 1"o.d.x2/4"i.d. O-ring as a throttle lock I got one at the hardware store. Slipped it on, and it wasn't big enough to exert any friction on the throttle. The hardware store had no larger O-rings, but it did have some 1/16" rubber washers. I got one with a 1/4" center hole and about 1.125" o.d.. Put the washer against the outer weight, which let the O-ring press more against the throttle. Works like a charm.

In conclusion: 1/8" O-ring AND a 1/16" flat rubber washer was what it took.

This is what a lot of us use .

It is a fat yellow O-ring, Caterpiller part no. 8M 4991. There is also the Caterpillar part no. 8M 5266. Either one works - there is a slight variance in size.

An advantage of the Caterpillar O-Ring is that it is made of silicon, not rubber. It does not deteriorate from exposure to the sun's rays, as rubber will. They cost about $3 a piece and I haven't worn my first one out yet.
