80 Degrees today so i pulled out the little old Roto Spader for a run up, on my way to cleaning the points i found that sometime this winter Micky Mouse moved in to the cooling shrowd and chewed off the wire housing for the spark plug then promptly died in there ( i hope he choked on the rubber) so a shortened Tecumseh copper core wire did the trick.
Also here's a vid of the first start after a long fall and winter as a home for Micky Mouse.

Enjoy

Sorry to hear that you had some damage Jesse. I've had my share of trouble with mice too and I'm actually considering getting another cat to keep in my out buildings to keep them out! I used bait traps this year, the only problem I have with those is that the mice live long enough to build their nests before they croak!

Yeh, i almost cried when i saw the nest, i just knew it has chewed it and it did, it still had the original woven cloth cover over the rubber.
It's fixed but a 2 inch long $%*&^ took away a little of it's originality, remind me,..why did god make mice ?
