I've got double petcock fuel taps on my vintage Yamaha...the left one has been giving trouble and today I was fiddling with it while on the move....changed its setting and suddenly fuel was leaking at quite a rate from the actual tap itself and was then 'wind sprayed' all over my DSSD on the same hand.
The watch smells fantastic, but I washed it and it's old Zulu band in warm soap and water when I got home. It still smells like fuel. Mmmm
Upon inspection my main concern was regarding the He valve...fuel getting and sitting in there...stoopid He valves. I won't touch the crown for a long while.
Should i I soak the whole thing? I've got big Seiko suicide Pins holding the band on and I don't want to cut them out (only way to remove them). After heaps of strap trials I've spent a great time with the old five ring Zulu.
Any other ideas re post petrol (that's gasoline) exposure...or is it all good?
