  • Front Mount Distributor Ant Home !!!
  • Never would have thought ants would make a home in a front mount distributor.My son asked me for some help on a 2N that has been sitting for several years.Thankfully in a dry shed.Old gas,clutch not blocked,old,old battery but thankfully in a dry invironment.New battery,new fuel and a refurbished distributor,oh and a refurbished carb all confiscated from Dad.Golly,what can I say.Hopefully we can get all things working tomorrow.If not I'll let him have another N.The distributor is a real mess but,,,it will work again someday.

  • A few years ago I had ants get in the XB distributor thru the vent hole of my 52" John Deere B.What a mess they turned the internal coil into nothing but a pile of goo.It took a lot of cleaning and a new coil,points and condenser to get it going again.

  • Ants can be real pests, got bit a few times by fire ants that invaded the sheet metal on my 960. Took about 20 seconds from start up to getting hit and one more for my egress! Then last week I installed a new GFI in by shop on the well house circuit as it was 20+ years with a weak spring that would trip frequently leaving the water softener system in-op. New one acted the same. Started opening things up in the well house and found a control box teeming with the little critters. Sure enough they were the cause of the GFI tripping.
