I found a great source of Marine grade wire for rewiring my tractor. The dealer is on ebay as "Gregsmarine" and his store is "Gregs Marine Wire Supply". He will mix and match any colors to equal 100FT of wire (10 colors X 10 FT= 100FT of wire). One order of 100ft of 14AWG was $23.95 including S&H. The marine grade wiring has thicker insulation and each strand has been tinned for better corrosion protection. I am very pleased with my purchase and I am sure to buy again from him.

I just use scrap 12 Gauge THWN stranded copper we accumulate from being electricians. It's already paid for by the jobs we completed (end of the rolls).

No Chris, all the end of the rolls are less than 6 foot (conduit is 10 foot). Therefore it can only be used for small projects, so... tractor wiring works well.
