Hornets in the Tractor

Way back when [20 years ago] Dad decided he needed another tractor. I was wanting one myself. One July day at the county fair a long time friend stop to see my parents at their stand. He happen to ask Dad if he knew of any one looking for a older tractor, Dad said he was looking for one. A few days later we looked at it, brought it home that day. The motor was stuck, but the price was right. After several days of soaking the pistons with oil the motor was turning. I thought I had gotten rid of all the hornet nest under the hood. The manifold had big rust holes in it, no muffler. I had my wife pull the tractor with the pickup, the tractor started just as soon as I let out the clutch. All I could see was a big cloud of blue smoke coming out from under the hood, after about 10 seconds I was surrounded by a bunch of VERY ANGRY hornets, and a cloud of smoke. Needless to say I left the tractor in a hurry with those hornets in hot pursuit. After everyone settled down I found a couple of nests on the top part of the radiator that I failed to see the first time. Luckily no one got stung. The tractor is still running today, minus the bees. All of this took place in the alley behind my house, here in town.
