Honestly, I doubt you'll see much improvement regardless of what you use. It's done near on 200,000km, any varnish is pretty well stuck there now. Is it really that bad, have you had the rocker covers off? You might be worrying somewhat unnecessarily

lol your doing too much, though I could understand the use of sturdy cloth bags that are promoted to be used at Trader Joe's around here. Paper just seems to flimsy to me but, that's just me.

These small engines all need four things to run: 1. Air 2. Fuel 3. Compression 4. Ignition Take away any of those four things and your engine won't run. Of those four things, the carburetor needs the most maintenance. Plan on rebuilding your car

Have you seen any other owners with the same car ever able to replace the bushing separately? If not, chances are it is not worth saving the old arms.
