Wiring harness source?

Postby havoc1482 » Thu May 12, 2016 6:12 pm

I'm looking into getting a full wiring harness set for my Super A. 6 volt, magneto, cut-out, 4 position switch.

The current wiring is still presumably original because its braided (Definitely seen better days). Surprisingly everything still works as it should, but there are areas of fray and cracks. Exposed wire and/or small wraps of electrical tape are on almost every single wire. Its just become a personal annoyance

I want to get original style braided wire. I was looking at Steiner's complete kit (http://www.steinertractor.com/IHS481-wiring-harness) and was just wondering if anyone has any input on the matter.

I prefer the harness that https://www.brillman.com/ makes and sells. It will be authentic with each end tagged so you know where it connects. You can order online but I prefer to call. John Brillman usually answers the phone. That way you can be sure that you are getting the correct harness.

Thanks guys.

Good call on the Brillman BIGHOSS. I just last week bought a new coil for my H4 mag from them. Didn't even think of them. At $105 bucks it seems they are the lowest cost so far.

I restored a '48 SA, and got a wiring harness from Brillman. Hooked up perfectly. Mine has 12v conversion, but they make it for whatever setup you specify. 3 years later I am still happy, though it is a tad dirtier!!

I've ordered "fancy" cloth-covered wire from Brillman in the past and made wiring harnesses for all three of my tractors. It's not that difficult and I enjoyed it. Spent way less than $105. Just sayin'... :coffee:

I have to put a plug in for a local business: Agri-Services at wiringharnesses.com

You can get a period correct cloth insulated harness, or a modern style plastic replacement harness.

What size of wire is need if I was just going to purchase my own wire and make new harnesses? Cub 6v, 140 12v(to OE) and Super A 12v conversion. I am sure there are posts with the schematics as well.
