Good score Boss. They should last you for awhile. Use them wisely because you
have them all and there aren't any more left. :lol:

Hmm.....trying to figger a way to beat you out of em, Boss......Hmm.... :lol: Just Kidding;

If you don't mind me askin'...what'd the dealer charge for them? I need to see if I can locate some myself. I ended up finding 5 late model lights at RPRU last year for $4.00 each!! I'll need a few of those connectors for the 1976 and 1977 Cub and the 1975 140 where someone cut them off.

Yeah, the guy had a couple buckets full of lights and I picked out all the late model lights and asked how much, and he said $4.00 each. I should have bought the whole bucket of lights. I think they might have been selling out.

It doesn't really matter what the connecters would cost....well to an extent.....since you can't get them but one place, and need them. I need to call the local (100 miles away) dealer and see what they got.

most likely they will have none

and most likely they will not know what I'm talking about too. My luck thus far (about Cub and Super A/140 stuff) with the 2 dealers in the state I've dealt with.

I was looking at a web site with cub cadet parts and part # I H 530029-R91 and
part # I H 899385R1 were referenced together for head light connecter. Apparently some cub cadets used the same light connector as later I H Cubs.

Boss,

I happen to find 8 front plugs here local as well as the rear plugs. The front plugs are affordable but they want $150 for a package of 10 on the rear plugs, so I left them alone. For those that need any let me know because I have all the locations of the dealerships, phone numbers, and email addresses that have them in stock. I tried to upload the file but it was too big?
