<VV> vermin in Corvair engines

During "nap" time for the Vair....   Moth balls - engine compartment and 
under rear seat.  Traps - one by each wheel.  You'll need to air out the 
moth ball odor in the spring.

Oh, it's a good idea to check under the oil cooler cover once a month or 
so - even in driving season.
