Hi, I ordered a neutral safely switch and harness and shifter assembly from yesterday's tractor.

Shifter assembly went in fine.

Harness for safety switch was very difficult to get rubber grommet through shifter cover plate. I tried heating it up with a lighter and warm water but ended up damaging it. The plastic seems to hard to compress through the hole.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am at a loss as to what to do next. I don't want to order another one and have same thing happen. Only thing I can think of is making one and getting a grommet to fit and putting silicone on it to seal it up. I would rather do it the right way and install the correct harness just doesn't seem to fit.

Thanks in advance for any advice

Kinda like pulling a valve stem through a tubeless rim.
Put a bit of silicone on it and pull it through.

I did try Wd40 and when I tried pulling it I damaged harness.
I will order another harness and try the silicone

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
