Took a JD M completly apart and rebuilt anything that looked the least bit haywire and have painted all pieces and the main frame. My intent was to put it back together and complely shot one last time. Now I"m wondering about the nice new wiring. It looks about impossible to run the new wire after the tractor is assembled and it seems a shame to paint over the nice new expensive wiring. Anyone know how they came from the factory. Also did they come with wire or tower hose clamps?? 1950 #42041 Thanks in advance for any help! EGBinOR

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

John Deeres out of the Waterloo plant (letter series) were assembled and then painted. So to be correct the wiring would have been painted on those tractors. I'm not sure about the Dubique tractors. It is a simple thing to remove the instriment panel without messing the paint up, and running your wires after the fact. I ran pieces of wire through hard to get to places, and used them to fish the new wire into place.

I would paint the tractor in pieces because there are places you couldn't paint if assembled. If you are going to assembly it and then paint then you could assemble the tractor with the old wire or scrap wire and use that to pull the new wire through tight places.

Don't know about JD but it is well known that Fords had all of the red painted and all the gray sheet metal was painted prior to assembly. The two dash panels would have been put on before wires, then after most wiring and control rods were in place, finished sheet metal was attached.
