Neighbors Murray

Last year I got my neighbors 1992 Murray running for him. He took the mower to his dad's hunting property to keep things up. He said it was running fine then died. His wife told him it was smoking real bad underneath before it died. I think I found the problem.

Sure hope the little mousey got out first. Well maybe not.

a "bale of mouse nest" :D just think how many trips they have to make to move that much material into the engine...

If the attachments are raised or removed, then you can make a ring of sheet metal 6" high around all 4 tires so they cant climb up into the tractor

You would think by now someone here had come up with a solution. I may just have to do it.

id="quote">I may have found a solution to keep mice out of the old cast iron briggs. I started doing this last year. before storing a tractor i pull the sheet metal off the engine head and replace the head bolts. this opens up the coil area that the mice love to make a nest on. the mice don't like it being opened and exposed. I have a B-10 and squire 9 sitting in the shed since last fall and so far no mice in the engine's. I live on 5 acres of woods and fields so i have my share of mice.
