Mouse died in engine

Recently had a Husqvarna 18.5/42" rider come in that something tried to get out of the block. We had an older stock engine to repower it. Only difference was the new engine had a tri-circuit alternator (No AC source for the headlights) and the dead engine had the dual circuit. Beings it was a Rent to Own business we sell/ service, it needed to be fully functional so I had to swap the alternators.

When I got the flywheel off of the dead engine, I found the real source for the failure.....

2 times I have taken dryers apart and found dead squirrels in the blower. What a mess.

Sometimes, that's the final resting place for Snakes too (not really FINAL); but a place to de-compose.

Like the mouse who fell into my blower cage on my truck while I was sitting at a bank drive in window with the fan on WAO. It shook the entire dash board.
