I have been getting my cub prep'd for paint ,after removing the fuel tank I noticed my wire harness is pretty much deteriorated ,I have a Jensales manual but it's pretty generic, could someone possible post the correct diagram please? my sn# is 96,XXX ,It has three light's, a four position switch for charging and light's ,ampmeter ,none of which worked :lol: I am going to keep it as original as possible 6v.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank You.

Check out the Cub Manuals on the server. No JenSales junk there. The GSS-1012 Electrical should help you out the most - it is under the Blue Ribbon Service Manual link.

I learned the very hard way that the manual(s) are INVALUABLE!
I could not locate the correct diagram on Rudi's server and spent HOURS tracing down the wires (wringing them out I think is the correct term) and it was all clearly laid out in the OPERATORS MANUAL.
Well worth the $10!
The service and parts manuals are more money (27 + 23 each I think)
I also ordered the wiring harness. Not sure if it is worth $50 but the colors all match up and it seems to be a quality part.
Got them pretty quick from Carter and Gruenwald.
My tractor looks like yours, parts everywhere!

Good Luck

I went to that show last year. Pretty interesting. Mostly I was interested because I just bought an M105A2 trailer down at Groton and was about to pick it up when I saw the signs for the show.

Pounds for dollars it was a sweet deal.. 2600# empty and I paid $200 for it. Had to modify it so I could use 2" ball and drop the hitch so I could attach it 'level' to the F250 (receiver stuck but good). Something like 18 leaf springs each side.

Let me know if I can decipher the wiring for ya.
