    You call that a rat's nest? Why, there aren't even any pine cones and it should have sticks the size of your fingers at least! Little beggers move into everything that has sat still more than a day around here.

    That carb is... scary.

    Plugs are out to see if I can salvage the engine at all…. Sat for a week with Marvel Mystery Oil down the holes, and the engine is turning freely.

    The only real damage the mice did was eating through all six plug wires. 😂

    It looks more like a corrosion issue to me. Was there a bunch of junk in the engine comparment? A burn mark on the hood could have been a small carb fire, but with an open float bowl the fire would likely have been intense enough to do far more damage than what can be seen in the pic.

    That is what happens when you run ethanol laced gas in a carbureted engine.

    It had a backfire?

    I should add, there’s a burn hole in the hood almost directly above it.

    Float stuck; then used too big a hammer?

    Yep, those fuel leaks are hard to find sometimes.
