Congratulations. We all have to whiz on the electric fence every so often to learn a lesson.

Get a used plate and rebuild it if it needs it. These guys should be able to help you w/ used parts:

John Smith

Rod Mondor at Forest Lake Tractor or 651 464

Ken at Long Lane Tractor or 717-367-8610

There are three ways to replace the bushings in a front distributor:

1. Buy new bushings (part numbers 9N12120 front & 18-12132 rear). Press out the old ones, press in the new ones and ream to fit. CAUTION: do not try this unless you have a press & know how to use it. If you break the base, a new one costs $130. If you bend the tower which holds the front bushing, a new plate will cost you $30. Resist the temptation to buy a new plate; most are pot metal and the threads will wallow out about the third time you change the points.

2. Take the new bushings and distributor to your local machine shop.

3. Send the distributor out for bushing replacement if you do not have a local machine shop
