On a 105/115 oil pan you didn't just take off a running engine, I'd make sure to take the bottom off and see what's inside. Got this 1750/2000 pan from a friend, debated about removing the bottom, sure glad I did. Nice little mouse nest there. It was 100% invisible from above, only way to see it was to remove the bottom.

No doubt the mice were attracted to the maze in the batwing pan.

Several times upon reading a post here on AlfaBB regarding dealing with the aftermath of infestations of rodents I feel the need to issue a warning.
In my part of the world an automatic red flag goes up when I have to deal with the detritus of rodents in any situation- closed up houses, sheds, cars, motor homes, ...oil pans (!)
HANTAVIRUS is a real, persistent and deadly problem potentialy more lethal on a case by case basis than our current viral scourge.
IOW, if you insist on blowing mouse feces and dried urine (the source of the virus) around with your shop air supply, please wear a mask and gloves and do it in an open area if possible. There is no vaccine for this virus either, yet.
OK, I'm off my A. Fauci soap box now.

Note taken. This pan sat outside for sometime in the mountains of Kern County, not attached to an engine. So easy in, easy out. I didn't use air on it when cleaning.

The engine with that pan is now built. Hope no critters get in now!
