Replacing Wiring

Recommended Posts

How many have completely replaced all of the wires in their tractors? After already experiencing a few problems due to old wires I'm thinking about replacing mine.

I have done that. After fighting with electrical problems for so long, I started all over with my powermax. The PO had done some "custom" wiring so I was never sure what was what. I also put in all new switches to eliminate any problems there. You need to take good notes when removing the old and a good wiring diagram when installing the new. Things are so much better now and the wires are bundled nice and routed out of harms way. (My lights no longer wink at me!!) It can be time consuming, but it is way worth it. I'm not sure if there is even wire harnesses available for these tractors. I have made my own wiring harnesses ever since I spent money on a harness for my IH W6 that wasn't even close.

Definitely change over if capable.I have done that with my 1920 Ultima but it was with an OEM harness from another tractor that was mint. Like stated above my PO did some custom work and had different colors all over the place, not good when your troubleshooting electrical problems.

Of the three operational tractors that I have, only one has an original wiring harness. The other two were re-wired from scratch. Most times it is easier to start over than to try and trace out a harness and find a problem or change things for a special application, like battery ignition instead of magneto.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
