Wow, 7 foot of wire is longer than I expected to hear.

Well, that is $15.75 for the wire not including shipping.
Add in that $8 for the terminals and heat shrink and your up to a wopping $23.75 for the do it yourselfer!

That type of wire TM uses will run over $5.00 a foot. Your calculation may be a bit off.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Does anyone want to talk about what oil to use? How about if converting to 12 volts is a must-do?
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Might as well include electronic ignition modules and fluid filled tires. :surrender:

Sooooo wait a minute... Just because Barnyard says so, that is the "correct" answer? I see no citation as to the official factory source for that information.

That makes my answer of 121.67" long and 0000 wire just as "correct" LOL!

Hey, if you want to spend "over $5 a foot" feel free to do so!
