    Bizarre stalling due to acorns

    I went to start my lawn tractor today and every time i came off the brake pedal the tractor would stale, just like when you come off the seat when not in park. After repeated attempts I was convinced I had a linkage problem. Just for kicks I check gas and noticed a few specks of white seat cushion. When I lowered the seat a few acorns fell out. I lifted and dropped the seat again and more fell out. I then realized that the acorns might be interfering with the seat sensor. Sure enough and keep lifting and lowering the seat and maybe 50 acorns had been stored in the seat. I started the tractor once again and no problem.

    That is bizarre, and kind of funny too.

    Good question. I usually put my nuts on the seat.

    Had a friend who’s car was stuck in park, $400 later the dealership removed a Walnut from the transmission.

    This is why I shoot chipmunks.
    They are not cute, they are destructive little monsters whose only apparent purpose is to find the most inconvenient place to store their nuts, and dig holes under concrete, causing it to settle in bad ways. Man, I hate chipmunks.

    Wait until they decide to start storing stuff in your engine compartment, if they havent already. Or build a nest in there.
    Good times!

    Squirrels are just larger chipmunks, but arent legal to shoot out of season. They do stay away from the house and garage for the most part though. Maybe theyve seen what I do to their smaller buddies.
    They dont live underground, but dont mind digging to find the nuts the chipmunks stored!

    Squirrels have a season?!? Good grief, if there was ever a critter that was in no danger whatsoever of going extinct...

    That is true here as well, squirrels fall into “small game” but I don’t believe there is a limit.
    I do however agree with how destructive chipmunks can be, we get rid the few that get past our dogs and the killer cat.
    Red squirrels are the worst by far.
