headlight harness

Postby delco32 » Wed Oct 30, 2019 4:37 pm

Hi Folks

I have a 55 cub that I have gotten replacement lights for. I have the light switch wire up to about the generator where it is cut off.

Would anyone have a real pic of the actual harness and how it is wired?. This is for the 6 volt battery ignition stock lights please.

Thank you

if you look in the owners manual it shows the wiring harness, if you do not have the manual look under the quick links, pdf manuals on this site, they are free to look at and download for members

The headlight wires should not end at the generator, they originally are part of the wiring harness, and go forward, one to the right light, and one to the left light.
One wire is spliced to the other wire, near the fan shroud.
The left wire goes up over the top of the shroud, in the 2 clips on the shroud.
Both wires go out the holes in the hood, you have to feed them through the holes after the hood is put on.
Below are pages from the 1955 Cub owner's manual, showing the wiring.
The numbers on the 1st page are explained on the 2nd page.

This page below shows the headlight wires at the shroud.

Below is a pic from TM Tractor of the top of the shroud, showing the clips. :)
