    I was tuning up all the vehicles the other day and pulled my old farm truck over to the garage cause it was running rough, dang mice had gotten into the air intake and built a nest right under the air cleaner :eek: ate almost all the paper off the filter, good thing they have a metal screen or I'd be tearing the top of that motor off ;)

    Now, that's a blue-ribbon dud, Charles....The first thing I ever drove was '49 Chevy truck with one of those gripping balls on the steering wheel---without it, you'd have to be Steve Reeves (another oldie ) to make a turn....LOL

    My tractor has one of those gripping balls, and yes it is a bear to turn with out it... Here's another surprise I found. This is the hot rod left over from my single days, gets about 9 gallons to the mile on super+ so it doesn't get driven much. Dang mice got it too :(
