  1. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    My truck looks like these photos below but there is no body on the back right now .

    493613 493614 493615 493616




    I'm thinking of a rear body look like this. Actually, like the...
  2. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Working on it. Have decided the pickup body will not work without a great deal of effort that I am unwilling to provide at this stage in life. Am trying to sell the P/U body and will have a welding...
  3. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    UPDATE

    I'm the OP on this and over the past two years have become pretty good at getting the mouse smell out. First of all, find where the smell is coming from and it's usually the vents. Then,...
  4. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Final word on removing mouse smell is Lysol. A spray can works but won't reach all the nooks and crannies so you need a spray bottle and pour some from a jug and spray with that. It is the only...
  5. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    The 300 Ford HD engine is really a beast of torque. Many do not realize it's still in use in many UPS trucks. My N600 Ford with that engine was rated at 19,800 GVW.

    The Offy intake manifold is...
  6. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    I had been waiting for six of my closest friends to show up to put the bed on but never could get more than three at a time. I finally did it myself with my Harbor Freight two ton engine hoist and it...
  7. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Here's a photo with the pickup body being test fit. Note there are no rear fenders on yet.
    Ditto on no running boards or fill piece between the bed and running board yet.

    Oh...mouse smell is...
  8. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Here's a photo of the "fishplate" inner frame piece I had welded to the inside of the frame. It's a frame within a frame. The holes are for bolts and I had 10 holes--maybe 12--punched in each side...
  9. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    My seat smell has gone away but there is still a "dankness" to the interior. Since it's only a simple seat with no other upholstery I'll probably just get it reupholstered. You want the interior of...
  10. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    All new wheel cylinders, rebuilt Hydrovac, new master cylinder and all new lines. New brake hoses. Clean up the brakes, shoes and springs and lube underneath correctly. Now I feel better.
  11. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Yes, plan B for me was to get the correct ends on the hose and then a universal and correct length hose in the middle. One of the problems was the inside diameter of the hoses was not the same as OEM...
  12. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Not around these parts. The dummies at the chains can't do anything vehicle-related unless you repeatedly tell them the year and make. Not a prayer of getting them to open a parts book or figure...
  13. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Forgot --duh--to take a picture of the "fishplate" that's welded to the inside of the frame. It's a frame within a frame and done right. The plates cost me $150 to have made and bent. It will get ...
  14. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Thanks, OldMc, I needed a compliment right now. The truck should have been drivable this afternoon but there is a problem in the brake line right front. I replaced everything in the brakes and lines...
  15. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Look at the original 1967 brakes on it.

  16. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    New thread soon but here's the newly shortened truck.
    Oddly, the mouse smell is gone but my mind's eye still smells that vinegar and water.

  17. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Since I'll be standing back and encouraging the others, pictures should be a snap.
    In a way there is sort of a nervous apprehension about this. Like on a bungee jump tower debating the issue....
  18. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Well, I am, in a sense farming the grunt work out to a local shop. I'll be 100% involved but going to watch from afar when the wheels come forward.
  19. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    OldMc
    Great olive oil info.

    Dave1949
    Moving with tractor probably wouldn't work. I have done similar things in the past and it was too difficult to control the exact movements required. The...
  20. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    OldM--Thank you.
  21. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    I don't know beans about olives other than I like olive oil. Is there a difference between olives of other country or growing regions?
  22. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    OldMcDonald--I looked at your link

    Do you grow olives?
  23. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    OldMcDonald--I looked at your link

    Do you grow olives?
  24. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Then we have a deal. Everybody wins.
    I take (most of) the dogs, you take the pigs and we're both happy as a clam.

    It's not so much that the mouse smell remains in the truck as the dankness that...
  25. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Here's the answer to the mouse smell. You can sort of get it to leave by substituting other foul smell but none of it takes the dank and musty smell away.
    I'm going to have the seat reupholstered...
  26. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    I certainly hope so and I'll do my best. Things will drag at times because I have other things to do as well but I figure the frame and brakes done in a month to five weeks. Then if I can figure out...
  27. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Thanks. I'm going to talk with a guy about doing the frame split for me. It's complex because a section of the frame has to come out and the wheels need to come forward to take the wheelbase from...
  28. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Thank you O-McD--You never know long things last The truck was never in the hot summer sun and I think hot sun and abuse are what kills plastic interiors like dashes and seats. The dash looks...
  29. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Thanks. Will do.
  30. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    I'm putting the dryer sheets in soon so I'll grind up some charcoal as well and see what happens. The vinegar smell that remains is nauseating.

    On the plus side I changed the anti freeze today and...
  31. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Yeah, Ill give you that. I got some great advice here. Thank you.
    TBNers seem to know how to do just about everything that needs doing.
  32. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Well, I sprayed the dickens out of it with the vinegar and water thing and then I used Lysol and called it good. No smell from the mouse any longer but I'm evolving to re-upholstering the seat as a...
  33. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    There are lots of stories of 300,000 mile Ford 300 straight sixes around. And think about it, they put one in this 19,500 GVW truck and the engine has remained popular for 40 years.



    ...
  34. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Took out the seat back--where the mice were-- and put it in the sun for a couple hours. Then I soaked the affected area with vinegar and water and let it dry. Then I did it again. For the third time...
  35. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    The ID plate identifies the engine as a 300 HD 6 cylinder so I went with that. Plus, the air cleaner has tags on it that say 170 HP and I think 300 cu in as well. I'm OK with that for now since...
  36. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Good advice and you sure know that engine. You are probably right with the bigger engine and I might go that way but it may take a while. I already have really fast things and have done the...
  37. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    And might I add that the Ford 300 appears to be a chick magnet. :D
  38. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    That's sort-of what I've been thinking. Out of the box it has more torque than a lot of other things and with a cam and improved breathing I think I can get by. The 300 engine has shown up in a lot...
  39. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Excellent hantavirus info--thanks. Everyone should read it and the woman in the article should be wearing rubber gloves.
    One part of this is we are surrounded by mice because they are...
  40. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Air bags is a nice thought but would be difficult and very costly on the size of that truck's suspension. For the few hundred miles a year that I'll drive, what I have is good enough and remember, it...
  41. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Regular hydraulic with a vacuum assist. No sure what to do just yet. Old (well, older) timers said the brake system was highly regarded so I might sort-of leave it alone. I am going to replace all...
  42. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    farmgirl--what do you think of the advice below? Sunlight, vinegar and a little bleach? I think I have some urine off from an earlier tragedy but I'm not positive.
  43. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    Thank you for all the good advice.

    I'm aware of the mouse virus thing and wear rubber gloves at all times where there appears to be a risk. I wash my hands multiple times a day and never...
  44. Re: How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    330200


    It's a Ford N600 1967 "cab-forward" and not a "cab-over" even though it's a snub nose. 10,000 miles. Same cab as a regular truck but it's way up in the air. The tag axle is going away...
  45. How to remove mouse smell from cab of farm truck?

    I bought a farm truck that is in remarkably good shape with the exception of a problem from one mouse that got into the cab last winter at his farm. As you can see in the photo, the seat is really...
