I loved the smell too.
Years ago Schwinn sold a bike lube called LPD9, which
also had a nice aroma. Probably had Benzyne and some
other nasty stuff in it. Doh!

Ya, a stinker for sure Jacob, but the vintage can is a keeper. Containers are aerosol or plastic anymore. I would clean it up after it's empty and display it.

Ranks right up there with my vintage Marvel Mystery Oil can.

When it comes to penetrating oil Kano Kroil for me. The smell is very tolerable and it doesn't smell like your a oil tanker driver. However, Klotz Techniplate is the best smelling oil.

That can is still around half-full and I still use it. It always seems to work as intended. I haven't tried any of the new Liquid Wrench penetrating oil available today to know if they changed it or not. I know Kano Kroil is supposed to be some of the best, I have yet to get my hands on a can of the stuff. I had to take that can out to loosen the handle screw on an outside faucet that has been leaking from around the stem. Need to replace the packing nut washer, and might as well replace the seat too while I'm in there.

I just got back from Menards, got an assortment of washers that looks to have about the right size I need.

On a side note, I'll be posting about Rusty's engines tonight. I bet Kim is anxious to get his hands on them  bounce .

Jacob, if you're talking about a hose bib, you could replace the whole thing with a 1/4 turn ball valve and be done with it forever.
Over the last 20 years or so at my job, every time I had a problem with a washer/seat valve, I would replace it with some sort of ball
valve. Never had to even think of them after. Everything from hose bibs/boiler drains to proportional modulating heating valves.
here's some bibs and more.:

Yeah it's a hose bib. It's the first time I had to replace any of the seals in it, and I'm pretty sure it's the first time since it was installed back when the house was built in 1979. It was starting to leak around the stem last fall. I'm sure the one in the front of the house will need it more sooner than later as well.

Because of the how the pipe goes partially down into the sheetrocked wall in the finished basement, I wanted to avoid replacing the valve the best I could.

I know it looks like hell, this whole side of the house is going to be painted this summer. Camera flash makes it look a lot worse Shocked.
