Hi David I just restored my 1958 D-17. I made a completely new wiring harness for my d-17 using my Operating Instructions manual for help. There is a page in that book towards the end that tells you what wire goes were and even the correct color of that wire. If you want i might be able to scan that page and e-mail it to you.
When i made mine I used 12 gauge wire. You should have seen the wires i took out. Someone had spliced a wire from the generator that had burned in half with speaker wire. No wounder my battery wouldn't hold a charge. Also the back of my dash was solid rust from sitting outside. That rust was shorting out the amp gauge and the battery.
Let me know if I can help.
Do it yourself and save money as well as learn a new trade. If i can do it so can you.

hey john thanks for the info, i made the one i am using now myself also and it works fine, i used my allis manual for reference . i am re-restoring this tractor and i am tired of getting beat at shows because of small things like non original wiring, alt. tire size,etc. so i am trying to put it back all original.

AGCO should still offer them - they have the one for the WD/WD45 for about $65. Check with Sandy Lake Implement in PA. There is also an outfit that advertises on here once in a while that makes "old style" harnesses - using materials like they used back then - if you're interested in historical accuracy. I *think* they go under wiringharnesses.com or something similar. That AGCO harness is fine for a normal tractor, though.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
