for my 1958. It was $127. They do nice work. Everything is soldered, heat shrunk, wrapped in cloth like material similar to original. All wires are labeled for easy assembly I went for new plug wires and battery cables which brought it up to $200. They're a small family business and it took a few weeks to get but worth the wait.

This thread is close to 2 years old. He’s already got a harness I’m sure.

May or may not be cheaper, but supporting a member or sponsors is always good!

What is a crank handle?

Hand crank.

Oh wow. Thought you guys were talking about some electrical device.

My Cub has a 12v conversion and I rewired it myself with wiring from a auto parts store and a spare new trailer light wiring harness. 12v doesn't use the high amperage that 6 volt does, so I could use lighter gauge wiring for the lights and ignition. I used 12 gauge for the charging circuit and kept the battery cables that were on it, just putting battery clamps on them.

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.
