If it's anything like some engines I've had the "pleasure" of runing the "deoderant" is from that well known French perfume house.... "Eau d'essance"

Here is the part that's not funny. The engine is fixed. It took forever to find out what was wrong and I came within an inch from breaking it after rebuilding it.

A previous "technician" had been at it and one of the two 4mm o ring's had fallen off the back of the enrichment valve where it attaches to the bottom carb. It was by pure chance I found this and if It was in commercial premises the bill would have been more than the engine was worth. It's certainly one for the memory bank.
