It ran for a day really well I didn't suspect anything was even wrong with the wiring. After that the battery began to charge so I looked at the wiring around the alternator. The person who converted it to 12 volt had put the wires too close to the header and they melted. That's what prompted me to get the new harness. Then when I began to examine the rest of the old harness I noticed these other things. I thought maybe it has too much inline resistance, or the wires may not be large enough to carry the current, or something making the wires too hot. I would hate to put on this new harness and have the same thing happen to it.
When I got the replacement harness I went ahead and soldered the clamped on ends and used heat shrink tubing on them. Why would they come without that? I figured that they wouldn't last long if they got wet much and working tractors get wet sometimes.
Now I have to figure out what wires go where LOL.
