I tried phoning all over East coast Australia
this morning to get hold of some of the fancy fluid but was not successful, so back to the web and I found on another forum someone recommend baby oil
, so I got some babies and extracted the oil
... just kidding, I put some baby oil in a small container and tipped in a sample of the existing stuff in the compass and it mixed fine, so I filled the compass full, put the unit in the freezer
, apparently it makes the air go out of the oil and now my compass is all good again and I can re-fit it back to the back and most likely never look at it again.
Thanks for your help Guy.
