I want to thank everyone for all the help. I took the advise and where she was running nice I just cleaned up the carb cleaned and lubed the governor linkages and put a new fuel line on

While I was waiting on a coil I took the time to install a new wiring harness replace the battery cable , I know I need to fab up some wire hangers but we had work to do. I am sure the new coil and getting better fire is a big help she fire's up right off and not so picky on throttle setting to start I also put in new points, condenser. plugs, need to look at new plug wires but there good for now

But the nice thing we got the place ready to seed in a cove crop and now I can try and get her ready for a parade next month.. She may not be the pretest girl at the ball but she is a worker and she is mine

Below are pages from the 1955 Cub operator's manual, showing the original wiring routing, if you need them. The pic in the middle of the 1st page shows the battery cable routing.
The battery to starter cable is number 2 in the pic.
The numbers in the pic on the 1st page are explained on the 2nd page. ... e%2049.jpg ... e%2050.jpg

There were originally 4 clips under the right edge of the hood to hold the cable and wiring harness.
They are shown in the pic on the 1st page.

The connection between the air cleaner and the carburetor was originally a metal pipe, with a short length of hose at each end.
The hose on your Cub looks like it might be rubbing on the governor linkage rod. The hose can't rub on the rod or it could make the governor work wrong.
The rod was originally straight.
Below are listings at TM Tractor for a new pipe, the pipe has a bend in it, out away from the engine, so there is room for the governor rod. The lower left pic shows it, you can look at the pics. :)
