Default Fuel for an Enya

Hello, My name is Mart├*n Giachino and I am a 16 year old argentinian boy. I have recently acquired an Enya 0.060 from my father. He says that the engine dates from the year 1960, and that it is a Diesel engine. As I have just started flying a trainer model ad I┬┤m very excited about aeromodelism, I would like to know if someone knows which kind of fuel it is required for starting the engine. Thank you for your attention,
Mart├*n Giachino

Here are the fuel mix from Enya instrucion from 1960..

Kerosene 37%~36%
Ether 37%~36%
Castor oil 25%
Amyl/nitrate or Amyl nitrite 1%~3%

If difficult to buy Amyl/nitrate or Amyl nitrite, use polyester hardener who has Methylene Ethylene Ketone Peroxide often wrote in short word MEKP.

Jens do you know what the mixes are for Enya #1, #2 and #3 diesel? I thought I saw some reference to these three but can't find it now.
