Cub wiring

Postby 1pkrbkr » Wed Mar 02, 2016 8:40 am

I've been working over the past several months on my wife grandfathers 1948 Cub. It's ready to be wired (6 volt) but the wiring diagram isn't making a lot of sense. Before I burn anything, does anyone have pictures of the wiring they might be able to send me? Any help would be greatly appreciated

If you have the operators manual the wiring diagram is in it, pretty easy to follow

Welcome to the forum. Have you checked the manuals at the top of page. Also check the how to section.
1975 cub (LouAnn) serial # 245946, 1941 John Deere Model H

Pictorial wiring diagrams are provided in the Operator's Manuals and the service manual.

Top of page, select PDF Manuals or Rudi's Manuals, then go to the year nearest your tractor. You can down load the entire manual and print it out.

While there, look over the information provided in the blue tab at the top of the page. Also check the How To section of this site. Tons of great information.

Also useful is the Search function on this site.

If the line drawing wiring diagram in the owner's manual isn't doing it for you, then pictures of a wired Cub aren't going to be of any help either. All it will show is a jumble of wires disappearing into an inaccessible area.

This simple pictoral diagram covers a 1948 Cub with a magneto:
