I've seen mice inside a wheel running like crazy to make the wheel spin, maybe the previous owner was trying this principle in the A10.

Obviously didnt work  *doh*

Gav, as you know ally makes it's own air seal as it oxydises, it may look horrible but I would still clean it up and then check for any real disaster! I have had very furry parts,(not me but cases)and when cleaned turned out servicable. Even if you have to have some welding done , don't throw it away. most things can be reclaimed.
