Used the old Sears Suburban Super 12 for a few minutes today - got where I
needed to be - and shut her off. Then noticed our 12 year old Dalmation
come over and sniff around the motor - she checked both sides and kept at it
for a while. Could only mean one thing - mouse nest in the area. Found
one behind the gas tank - and evidence of a second in the shroud that covers
the motor. This is not good - obstructs air flow, gets the motor to
overheat and causes all kind of grief. Won't run it anymore till I get a
chance to take the shroud off and get that cleaned out.
