Replaced the tired engine in my BigTen today. Removed the old one and cleaned all the muck out of the frame. There was a mouse nest but no signs of mouse pee yet.Stupid mouse made a bad choice with his winter provisions.In with all the clippings, weed seeds, thistle down etc. where he built his nest I found a chunk of the mouse bait I have around my shop.Guess it was his last meal.





After removing the original engine I prepped the replacement. Took off the sheet metal to clean out the mouse nest. After removing the nest I found that the ignition has been replaced with the magnatron system and the flywheel repolarized. Whoo Hoo. Great spark. I did get the replacement engine installed and bolted down; driveshaft reconnected; wiring hooked up and battery installed. It turns over with a nice fat blue spark. Tomorrow I will hook up the throttle and choke and fuel line; fill it with fresh oil; add gas and see how it runs. This engine is also from a BigTen but has a lot more compression and the guy I got it from said it runs good with no smoke so we will see. If all is well I will reinstall the grill and hood and mount my backup snowblower for the winter. Here are some pics from today.

You made some good progress on that project.
I have a hate love relationship with mice. Hate to see them alive and love to see them dead.

I also need to get some mouse bait around the tractors. Appreciate the photos, getting me motivated to get my shop in order.

Michael if you have any pets around be careful with the poison. They love it. I almost lost a good dog to that stuff.

There is one pet cat who does go around the yard, so I'll have to make sure I keep that stuff in a place rodents get but not pets. Thx.
