Sorry for the thread drift. But I was never worried about those Reed valves. Lol I truly enjoyed bringing the old saw up to its top performance. I like engines and also have 2 Kamotsu engines in my herd. A 40 and a 62cc , both are from the Zenoah, line of RC engines. The 40cc was originally imported by Roush but it is a Kamotsu , I believe in 76. I forgot my pair of G23s, they to are Kamotsu/Zenoah engines, 23cc of reliability.


Yes there many types of " heating oils " so one can hardly argue that heating "oils " are different , lol. I do know here in Central ny. The red fuel that fuels our off Rd equipment, AKA , farm tractor's loaders, skidders and farm trucks is the same red fuel that is pumped into our homes to fire a burner. It is entirely possible that in the state you reside there may be a difference in red fuels, but as for me i highly dought it. Now "heating oils" do vary greatly and there are several grades. The oil delivered to the school reguires heat to get it to even flow. So one would have to totally agree that there are many types of heating oil. But in the geographic area I live in, the red fuel is all the same.

You’d better update your information. Most, if not all states require ultra low sulphur in heating oil. Been that way for years.
You better check your info, kerosine and diesel are different sulfur requirements, hence why they don’t sell kerosine at a pump that can be accessed by automotive service.

1-K kerosene is 0.04% sulfur content, suitable for wick fed, non flue connected burning systems, lamps, cooking stoves, etc.
2-K kerosene is 0.30% sulfur content, suitable for for flue connected burning systems, heaters, oil burners, etc.
the is sulfur %#’s not ppm #’s.
So yes it is vastly different that diesel ppm #’s

That is what kerosene was originally made for, that was its purpose for being refined as, a heating oil.

Its a distillate which is a very small fraction of heating products in use today. It’s not heating oil, which is what we’re discussing. Stop trying to justify your incorrect assertion about sulfur in heating oil using a totally different product. It only makes you look bad.
