    I've always kidded my wife I can't change her oil. The car never cools down long enough to do it. Some exaggeration there, but not a lot.

    Years ago, she went away for a week with her mother. Her car sat idle. When she returned, it wouldn't run. It coughed, spit fire, backfired, but didn't have power enough to move. After days of trying to go to work, and figure out her car, I tried one more time. A big backfire blew charred acorns out the exhaust.

    The muffler had been new with lifetime warranty. They gave me a new one. It was utterly packed with acorns.

    My buddy said it was filled mostly with bits of carpet padding, some carpet fibers, and a little bit other natural fibers. Amazing what crazy places Micky and friends will congregate.

    Looks like maybe when it was started with the clutch disengaged, which is a normal procedure, some nesting was forced between the fingers and the housing by centrifugal force probably resulting in increased free play and decreased clutch engagement.

    I bet it has a nice aroma to it, especially warmed up from the clutch moving...

    Was it really necessary to pull the engine to service the clutch!
    If yes then let me know what vehicle it is so I don't ever buy one!

    I opened up a WARN XD9000I winch that has been sitting in my shed for bout 14 years on a shelf, hadda rewire the solenoids for a wireless remote to put it to use, anyhow if the image works (not actual crime scene, just representative), note the alluminum cover spanning the spool.. the solenoids are inside that, the ONLY opening is the air gap around the battery cables as they pass through foam insolators... it was full of micky turds inside! how? I still can't figure it out... a pressure plate thats like a football stadium to critters that can get inside that winch cover..

    I bought a little tractor last year, spent a couple of days getting the carb & fuel pump cleaned up, put a temporary battery in it & got it fired up, it blew Palo Verde & Mesquite beans out the exhaust for a week or so while I was working on stuff & getting it up to par.

    I bought a C-65 Chevy that had been sitting in a barn for ten years, both mufflers were plugged solid. Little buggers had to be acrobats to get in there.

    Re: Clutch slipping issues

    I've been having a lot of mouse problems the past couple of years. This summer I didn't use my pickup for 5 weeks, first time starting I had crap hanging from everything behind the exhaust like tinsel on a Xmas tree. I started my truck last winter and did a pretrrip- there was a pile on the ground under the open inspection hole on the clutch of the same amount of stuff as Tman's pile. The next day after letting it warm up I opened the door, eyeball to eyeball with a field mouse, he jumped to the exhaust pipe to do the hot foot dance before running on to the trans to cool his feet. I found a 3/8" clear plastic water line chewed through so now I worry about wiring in everything so I have mouse traps of various kinds scattered. Found 9 at once early this winter in a spinning-bottle-over-a bucket trap. I heard an acquaintance had wiring problems in his pickup due to rodents so he sold it and bought a new one, no word what he did about his pest problem, if anything. I'm told some wire insulation and tubing is now soy based so it is attractive to critters. The most baffling thing I've seen is they chewed on some plastic cans with gas in them- the fumes doesn't seem to bother them!

    Friends and I bought an old 1937 Chevy coupe pulled it out of the barn. We got it to our garage looking it over the engine was free so changed the plugs and checked the points. A little gas in the carb. Turn the key it fires up belches fire out the exhaust and about 10 mice come running out the exhaust pipe they had built a nest in the muffler. We Laffed so hard
