Add Xylene to the mix. The wintergreen oil has trouble on its own and need a carrier. I use a mix of 75% Xylene and 25% wintergreen oil.

Does xylene come from the hardware store?

Yup. Most should carry it. I think it's a variant of paint thinner?

Rach just said "Xylene is a really strong solvent, and she cant imagine it NOT melting rubber."  So maybe I should check every 3 hours???

Listen to her, wives know stuff.  I was just poking through old parts I have some carb bits and other cm stuff.  I have a good head and cam etc should you need.  It would be yours for shipping cost.  I have some peg brackets and othe stuff.  My wife would love it to be mailed away lol.

I've read about a guy keeping parts in that stuff for 6 months and it was totally unharmed.
