Today I was using the '75 for a little trailer work. It was not a lot, after I finished doing that I wanted to do some york raking. I went to fill up the gas tank, and I saw a lot of debris coming from the spark plug hole in the top cover. :wallbanging: I looked at the other covers and saw more debris sticking out. After the engine cools off I will have to go and remove everything and clean it out, AGAIN!

This year I have already taken mice out of the 312, the '71, the '75, and my neighbors '64 power king. If you want to count the mice that came with the 195, then I have taken out 5 this year. Now, I am on number 6!

If only I had more rodent eating snakes to keep the population down some more. :laughingteeth:

I took off ONE nut on the heat shield and it started to rain. I will have to wait, probably won't do anything until morning.

Rain and mice, not a great combination and nothing to make your day with. Hope you get on with the heat shield.

Could have used a heat shield myself this afternoon. It was over 90 again.

It only just got over 80 here. But, it rained all through last night and this morning so it is HUMID as can be outside! The local weather says it is 77% out right now.

Sounds like you need a hungry cat around there. Not all cats are good mousers. Then some go after anything that moves. Ours used to bring them to us for praise.

A cat would probably be the bestng. But, I hate cats. Lol.! And I don't think my dog would like having a cat either.

Every other mouse house I took out this year was just that, a mouse house. But, this one was complete with real dead mice! :puke2: I got it out and did a little catching up on the york raking.

They were dead because you cooked them alive. LOL. I have a cat that loves to kill mice and leave them on teh back steps. I am not sure if it is a peace offering or she is threatening me with her hunting skill. My neighbor calls her the psycho kitty.

This afternoon my Boxer was after something in the tall grass that I can only imagine was a mouse.
