I have Farmall 460 to wire here in a couple days and we will se how long this takes . There really is not that much to them , Three wires out to the engine two for the gen. and one for the coil and if it came with a horn then a forth wire . Then from the voltage reg. ya have two wires coming up from there , one wire to the amp. meter and one to the lightswitch . Pull power from the amp meter to the Key switch . Your not wiring a 747 here . Ya want to do it in the correct colors then give me a couple days and i will dig out my computer disk and bring them up as i have them on a computer disk.

When I did a 560 a few days ago it was a major pain... I also used shrink tube on all the connectors.. There is more than you think. Took about 5 hours.

Not really , this is not my first rodeo on building wiring harnesses . I have done many , just how well do you want one one the works and looks ok or do you want a factory one as i can do both . I use extra heavy duty ends not the cheap stuff ya get a the car parts stores , i have the compound crimpers to do the crimpimg and they get the heat shrink . I have the Delco 56 plug ins and the plastic male female connectors . I build the harness off the tractor on a lay out board and i use a 2 x8 foot of 3/4 plywood and finish nails as terminal posts . Use a piece of 1/2 conduit for the rolls of wire and place the color correct and ga. size on it . Blue wire in a 10 Ga. (yea i know the book calls for 12Ga. ) for the hot lead off the gen to the reg. a 14 Ga. in yellow to the field from the gen to the reg. and so on . Now i will admit that if the certain wire color originally had a color tracer added that i do not have as i am to cheap to lay out that much extra to get a special order in the amount they will do this . But i do have ever color of wire that you can buy in 16 gauge thru 10 ga. and for alt. equiped i have the blue in 8 Ga. along with red black and white Oh and orange.

When I did my BIL's he didn't have shrink tubing. All it got was crimp on connecters. Didn't take long at all and I wasn't working fast. Plus wiring to me is pretty simple stuff.

When I did my 8N it was a 12 volt conversion, added rear work lights and flashing lights on the fenders, solder and shrink tubing. That took about 4 hours or so and again I wasn't working like I was on the clock for a customer. Don't think it took me over 3 hours on an M I did for my son in law last year along with a 12 volt conversion.

LOL how true. When I did my BIL's 560D I had no diagram and it was well before the day of the puter. The harness had fried and he had been starting it with a screwdriver across the starter terminals for 2 years. Lucky for me that the wires had not burned apart and with the melted plastic they were just stuck together. I seperated them and replaced them one by one. Then wrapped the wires together with tape. looked pretty good and my BIL says "that was easy, I could have done that"!!!!

I did do a 12 volt comversion to a Ford 8N this past spring along with an IE conversion, engine overhaul and rewire. I added 2 rear work lights, flashing lights and a power outlet to the rear to power an electric sprayer.
