I have a C which I've pretty much finished
restoring--including an engine overhaul. Now,
however, comes the hard part; the wiring harness. I have a new harness installed, totally in
accordance with the harness-maker's
instructions--I think. I installed the battery
and promptly fried one of my new harness wires.
Guess I don't know why i'm such a basket case with
wiring but the facts seem to say that I am,
indeed. I don't seem to know an electric
generator field from a pasture.

Can anyone recommend some real basic reading that
treats of six volt tractor systems. Mine happens
to include magneto ignition. Any help will be

Basket Case.

wiring is slow and steady work. follow each wire individually and connect to the right sopts. If yo u"fried" one, it was connected between + and - on the battery, dead short. need to follow each wire individually. remember the 6 volt system is positive ground. make sure the wiring diagram is also original.

Don't be to tough on yourself. Wiring freaks a lot of folks out. A couple fellows on this site have great diagrams you can look at to see where you went wrong. I make & sell harnesses and electrical parts. Give me a call at the shop if you haven't figured out what happened, I'd be glad to help ya out..
