    Thanks for all kind posts, my friends :)
    Aviation No.85 Volatile oil means the octane 85 fuel, of course.
    The Kotobuki engine was licensed products of the single-row Bristol Jupiter with the same bore and stroke.
    The character "壽" for Kotobuki can be read "Ju" in Chinese style for Jupiter too.
