You probably read "Zylol" or "Zylene", or some other solvent, and maybe part water with that too. I didn't really want anything that flamable on my gas stove or it could be "Bubber Parts Flambe" in a heartbeat
. I just used water from our reverse osmosis drinking water system instead. It approaches the quality of distilled water. I think the Zylene, or other solvent, is supposed to help the wintergreen penetrate and rejuvinate the rubber parts a bit better. Seemed to work with just water and wintergreen though. I think I was guided to the concoction by a link to a SOHC Forum.
