Hi,
Nice wiring repair. Here's a pic from the Farmall Cub owner's manual, showing the cable routing. The original routing was a little different by the clutch pedal. You're missing clip number 12 in the pic, which fastens on the dash at the little hole visible in one of your pics. In the IH pic the cable doesn't go forward of the clutch pedal stop. Then as the cable goes up by the dash, it's against the dash, or slightly behind it, out of sight. It's shown in the bottom left pic in the owner's manual pic. Thought I'd put the info here in case someone wanted to do theirs like IH had them. My Cub came like is shown in the owner's manual pic. One pic shows the whole length, mostly. Click on the pic makes it bigger. Have a good day guys, Glen. :)

Glen, I don't believe this was intended to show the factory layout, but rather as an alternative method as many of the "How To" posts are. Some Cubs are missing the clip you mention and without it the cable can get caught up in the clutch pedal. Bigdog's method shows how to avoid that by moving the cable forward.

Thanks Big Dog!

All my Cubs get the braided strap, it is the most reliable ground you can get and also works to keep the battery in place.

As for the pesky dash clip, even on a 12v with a smaller wire, it is the most difficult fastener on a Cub.
