Cub Lo Boy Wiring clamp

Postby pfrederi » Fri Oct 03, 2014 1:35 pm

I am working on a friends 1966 Lo Boy (#21987) 12 volt /Battery ignition. It came to me not running and partly disassembled. She is running again but I have a wiring problem. There is a metal clamp on the front wiring harness it is about 3" long has a tab with a hole for a bolt (1/4" ??). It holds the starter feed wire and the cloth wrapped harness for the front lights, regulator, generator. I see the clips on the bottom of the gas tank to hold the wire but can't figure out what this clamp mounts to.
Thank you

Paul,

I'm willing to bet this is the clamp that you are asking about:
Clutch is being held down.

Hope this helps.

If you are talking about this clip, it fastens to the last 1/4-20 screw on the RH side that holds the hood/tank to the hood support. There should not be a nut welded to the tank at this location, as for the other three 1/4-20 bolts.

Thank you for the responses.

Should have added a picture. Note I slide the larger clamp into position for the picture. The clamp in Bill's picture to me looks like the broken one to the left in my pictures.

Sorry guys think Bill was correct. It doesn't belong on the front harness at all, Is it #12 in this parts diagram (and the apparent broken on to the left in my pictures is #11???

I think your broken one is #13. Here is a shot of the underside of my 65 hood.

I think your "broken" one is #11 and is NOT broken. It simply wraps around the battery and taillight wires to protect them from chafing by the clutch pedal.

If it is #11 why does it have two wires going from the engine to behind the dash? I don't think it is broken, I have a feeling it is bent and the mounting hole is still there.

I may be mistaken, but the #11 I was talking about is in the lower left of his photo near the clutch pedal with one wire (battery cable). The one with 2 wires coming from the panel is the #13 you are talking about I believe.

Okay, I see what you mean. From the looks of his picture it seems #12 is missing and #11 & #13 are there.

This is the best game we have had on here in a long time! In Barnyard's pic, if # 11 has a broken ear then it is the missing # 12. If it never had an ear, then it can remain #11. :? :?

Well I am still sick from before we left for Cubarama and I refuse medication so I am letting my mind do as it pleases. Until now! :lol:

Ron has pretty much nailed it. It looks like #12 has slide down the wire and is resting in #11. A more clear photo of that area would confirm this, but I blew up the existing photo best I could and it pretty much shows that.
