Bees in the Bell housing

I have a 1937 A-C crawler. I had a hive of bees move into the bell housing. Even though I considered selling as a "Honey of a a deal" Any way that being said. I have removed the bees. But there is still a lot of bees wax left on the clutch. Is there any thing I can use to clean things without causing damage
Thanks Edward Clark

Better than mice,as they built a nest in a D14 I had, then they wet the bed several times. When I split the tractor the cluth springs literally fell out.

I agree with the other green guy and I might add very hot water because we make a honey based product and the only thing that cuts it is extremely hot water should do it and high pressure is good otherwise you just chase it around. Good Luck CT

Hot soapy water. Rinse it very well, as the wax will leave a slick residue if not.

Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
