Postby cubby » Fri Jun 27, 2014 10:07 pm

Rick,

Wiring harness is simple enough to make but if you are "restoring" the Original, I would get a new harness. I have had good luck with Porch Electric and they have a good quality one... http://www.porchelectric.com/index_files/Page3513.htm

Paint, get IH paint, my opinion, like oil, there are lots of opinions.

Good luck,
David

Rick,
Just another thought, give Hamilton Bob a call on the wiring harness, he doesn't have it listed but he does have some Cub Cadet parts. I got a great quality harness for a CC 73 from him, great price. He is just down the road if he has it! :wink:
Good luck,
David

Any place that mixes and sell automotive paint; car dealerships, auto body shops, auto parts stores. If you have a sample or the paint code, they can usually mix you up a batch. Some places will put the paint in spray cans.
I have an excuse. CRS.
