My generators back end is full of dead grass clippings. Maybe a mouse? My question is this, is it ok to blow out with air from the front end or should I disassemble and clean, Thanks guys, Bob

Bob - as Cub Bud said, dis-assemble and clean it. You might be surprised at what you find. Take a good look at the armature commutator to make sure that the surface is still smooth. This is also a good time to change or de-glaze the brushes if needed.
