Doesn't appear to be. Smells different and has a much different, almost foamy consistency. Obviously works too. All those manifold studs, and the exhaust clamp came off with no bother at all.CitroJim wrote:Same old WD40 in a new can I guess...
I've *almost* got it back together again. The stupid exhaust is one of those that almost always leaks at the manifold/downpipe join. Simply two bits, one fits inside the other, the clamp goes over the outside of them. Being god knows how old, it's misshapen and rough, so I gave up in the end and bandaged it up before I put the clamp on. Just got to put the bodywork back on.
It still ran rough when I started it up. Same symptoms. I took the top off the carb, took out the jets, blew through them all, drained the float chamber and pumped down the fuel hose with the footpump..
Now it all runs again. I must need better filtration on the fuel line, there's already an in-line filter on it. Perhaps something else is needed? I don't know what though!
