So here's what I found when I pulled the covers and started cleaning. DAMN but it reeked inside there! I didn't realize it was a little twin cylinder, but I'll bet it runs smoothly. I found mouse shit, mouse nest, mouse trails, dead mouse, and some more mouse stuff everywhere. When I got it all cleaned off, I found a lot of corrosion on the aluminum parts and a lot paint eaten away. We'll have to see what some fresh fuel will do!

This isn't better - it was when I opened the first half of the cover. See all the dark brown? That is mouse filth! Inside the cover that isn't yet opened is the nest in the next photo. Yuck! It has been days, but I can still smell it!

I got it scrubbed, degreased, used penetrating oil and lots of WD-40 so far. It still seems to have good compression. I think it will live again!
