Squirrels and a Tractor

Ok listen to this...two weeks ago I go out to start the truck and it won't turn over. I look everywhere and finaly realize that squirrels have eaten my fuel lines. So i go get some new ones and fix em with not problem. Yesterday, I hooked up my dad's Kubota to the truck and it ran fine in low gear, until I got out on teh road. Then it shut off. This happened a few times until I finaly got fed up, called my dad, and took the tractor home with his SuperDuty. So i take the truck to a shop, fearing the worst, but it turns out to be a clogged fuel cleaner. Another easy fix. So in the past two weeks I've replaced half of my fuel system. Truck runs great now.

Re: Squirrels and a Tractor

hah, my friend was off at school for 6 months and his old mercedes was sitting under a tree in his yard... when he got back he had to junk the car because the squirrels had chewed through almost every wire under the hood [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]

Re: Squirrels and a Tractor

Metal or not, it makes no difference. Muddy, apparently you aren't familiar with the Georgian variety of the common squirrel. They're mean and nasty. They do not fear humans as do their more docile cousins from other states. Squirrel hunting here requires a 12ga. or better yet a 30.06 to allow you a safe distance from these rabid beasts.
