I thought I would share a picture of my progress. I decided to go with IH white for the wheels rather than the red/grey. I have assembled the steering and the generator. The only thing I have left is the wiring which I am sort of stuck. When I got the tractor there was no battery so my research says that it is a 6V positive ground. My confusion is that the voltage regulator "L" is not light green as depicted in the wiring diagram but instead it is switched with the gray wire which is supposed to be the "BAT" in the middle of the regulator. They seem to be switched. The other end of the grey wire is connected to the charge indicator. I am afraid to hook up the battery as I do not want to fry anything.

Hi,
The Cub looks really good in your pic.
Below is a page from the 1959 Cub LoBoy owner's manual showing the wiring. It looks like IH changed the color of the wires, if you have a different year of manual. I think yours is connected right. The green wire goes to the ignition switch in the diagram, I can't see in your pic if that is where it is connected to. :)

Glen,

Thanks. You were right! Bought a 6v battery and set it up for a positive ground system. Eventually got it and its running well. I have some sort of electrical issue (possibly a ground problem?) because I cant get the headlights to work so I will have to figure that one out.

One other issue I have is that I have a Danco belly mower and the bronze bushing (part 2628) separated from the clutch sheave (part 2832) because I had to heat up the sheave to try and free up some frozen clutch pins. I am not sure if I should just lay the busing back in the sheave. My concern is that the grease gun hole in the busing may lose alignment with the grease hole in the sheave. I am not sure how the original bushing was secured in the sheave?


Thanks again.

The bushing is 'pressed ' in, it should be a snug fit. The are (or at least were) available from a dealer and need to have the lube hole drilled after fitting. Probably best to get a new one.

Your Tractor looks perfect from here! Try grounding your headlights better by removing some paint :cry:

Hi,
You could connect power directly to one light at a time and see if they work, they could be burned out.
TM Tractor or NAPA has new sealed beam units. They should be number 4511 units at the front, I don't see a pic of what light is on the rear.

Some of them had ground wires going from the lights to a ground at the dash bolt, I think maybe yours does in your pic, be sure they are connected right, and the wire end at the dash bolt, and the dash, might need sanding so it makes good contact. :)
