Mouse in da house

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a late B10 from another club member.

I expected to part it out, so I didn't even want pictures. He told me it was in nice shape and I trusted him. Said it had no compression.

He delivered the straightest, cleanest original I have ever seen. The ribs aren't even worn off the rubber foot pads.

Somebody snagged the original hood T bolts and the b10 emblem off the grill but otherwise all there.:o;)

Threw a s/g on it, then I popped the head, a little PB blaster, and some tapping with a hammer freed the valve. Cleaned and adjusted the points, added a known good carb of my own, a fresh battery and some fresh gas and she purrs like a kitten.:D:D

Smokes a bit, but I'm thinking maybe its a stuck ring and will clear up soon.

Thanks Bob. I usually have good luck running some 2 stroke oil in the first tank of gas.:DJudging from the foot pads and the worn paint on the steering wheel, I don't think this has a great amount of hours on it.

To clean to part out for sure.

id="quote">Nice story, Dan. I was expecting another mouse thread.I notice you had to add a few parts. Must be nice to just know what to do, and zoom zoom it's all done. I realize that's not how it is for me; but I keep learning more, and things are making more sense that they did a while back. I just find it a little amazing that you can just walk into a non-runner with confidence, and do what almost sounds like a ten-minute fix. It's more than that, I know. Having the parts handy - priceless. Thanks for sharing your experience.Because I thought it would be a mouse thread:I used to have a mouse problem due to a defective outside clothes dryer "vent screen". I trapped a herd of them and they kept coming. Fixed the dryer vent, problem solved.Couple a days ago, I was hearing sounds, ignored it as 'house noises'; and then remembered I had parked a 'live mouse trap' by Victor, behind my couch along the wall. This guy must have come in via front door while I was hauling groceries.I had been seeing (peripheral vision) little blurs moving - I have come to know what that means; and sure enough, the noise I was hearing was a mouse trying to chew his way out of this trap I had baited w peanut butter months ago. Held the plastic trap box up to a light, and there he was - a big one too. Live, no mess, no contact. A fascinating trap - easy entry - no escape - the mechanism is simple but ultra cool, very effective.This baby works. And it will trap up to 4 meeses. (about 6 bucks)http://www.victorpest.com/store/mouse-control/m333I washed the trap, and reloaded peanut butter, and put it back, out of sight, behind my living room couch against the wall - which is what they follow when touring the area.No more sounds since. sm01

Not quite 10 minutes, but under an hour :D

I have done a few 3 minute jobs on "non runners" in the past. :o:O

If i can't have a cast iron briggs running in under an hour, it won't run without parts or major work. May not run good, but I'll know why by then.}:)}:)

If you can still find it Rislone engine cleaner poured through the carb while running overhauled a 16hp briggs "ready to throw a rod" for me several years ago.

The stuck valve sounds like my '64 Landlord No compression problem. Still running strong.
