I bet the lights will work too since that fuse holder still looks to be intact and in good shape. Being around the 140's the fault point on the light circuit is usually either the fuse holder or the "hot" wire at the light switch (that terminal will rust and break off).

I didn't try the lights, some of the insulation is off the wires. I ordered a complete wiring harness from brillman that should be here in a few days. I want it to be right :D


Sounds good to me! Let me know how that harness turns out because I didn't realize they did factory harnesses for the later style tractors.

For this serial number range they are the only ones I can find and they are cheaper than any of the others. John Brillman is a stand up guy, used to see him at Denton every year and he makes some good stuff!!!

So I have heard for years! Never once heard a bad thing and have ordered random small electrical parts from there.

Been setting up cultivators on Norman and noticed these plates on the back of the feet. I’ve never seen them, we’ve always had big washers. I changed out a shovel and wire brushed one and sure enough, IH part number on it. Almost all these feet have one.

Repaired the piece for the fertilizer hopper. We’ll see if it holds.

Looking good! Yeah those little plates came on them from what I've found on original cultivator shanks........at least 1968 on up. I found them on an original 1968 and 1978 140 we had. Works better than washers, but washers work in a pinch.

Found another original hopper lid to go on the other hopper so both have lids now.

Shane,

Thanks for posting that new harness pic. I got the same one. But there are two things wrong with it relative to the original harness on my '70 140........the braiding on my original harness is a black plastic weave while the new harness has a white and black stripped cotton braid......and my original rear light harness has a solid (non-woven) gray plastic sheathing instead of any kind of woven braid like in your pic. How does this new harness compare to your originals?

Oh.....I did call Brillman about both of those issues. They said IH used harnesses from a number of vendors and those vendors used different braiding. As for the rear light harness I sent mine back and they're going to send me the gray plastic sheath version. I guess they don't know the SN cutoff for when IH stopped using the braid and went to the solid plastic sheath for the rear light. I think they make their 140 harnesses for this SN range to the early configuration with both harnesses braided. I'll discuss the other harness differences in my Brillman vs Porch post, but curious about you original harnesses.

Regards,
Bob

Bob, here’s a few pictures of the 140 as it is with the original. I haven’t installed the new one yet. I’m gonna do that and a clutch job at the same time and just haven’t gotten to it yet. My original sounds like what you describe yours is. The one from brillman is nice though it may not be just like the one on it that doesn’t bother me at all. I used to be a perfectionist about stuff like that but have gotten over it, if it works it works. You can see the naked wire in the last photo, that’s the one going to the coil. I need to install the new one, one day.

I recall the 140s I've restored to have the black woven plastic sheathing and the wires that come from the dash panel to the rear had the dark grey rubbery plastic solid sheath. This was coming immideately out of the dash and to the middle or rear of the seat if I recall. I know those Brillman harnesses are top quality and having something like the sheathing not be exactly correct would not even cross my mind. I'm sure they'll be happy to customize yours at your wish though.
