Bought used a grill with lights, wire harness with switch and wire to go to rear tail lights. Basically a  set up taken from another cub that I bought from another cub owner.

 

I mounted the grill / lights and ran the wire back, installed the switch. Did the Cubs come with a plug set up to just add this option, or am I looking for something that is not there ? There is a spade sticking out from the switch for the hot wire , just not seeing it there. If not there can you tell me where you feed the hot wire to ?

 

Thanks,

Joe

Not sure if this answer's your question. Your switch should have 2 terminals. One goes to the lights and the other goes through a fuse to the negative side of the amp gauge(side coming off solenoid/battery). Your fuse holder for the lights would be located right above or below your PTO fuse holder. There probably isn't one there, just a hole for one. Here is one.

Thanks LTD, that looks like the missing part to the puzzle. There is an extra hole there. By any chance would this be something available like at a auto parts store under a different part #, or do you think strickly a cub cadet part? Yes I would want it to fit in and look like the other, so probably answered my question.

I bought one awhile back from Autozone. Looked pretty similar, and fit in the existing hole. Can't remember the part number though.

 

This should work http://www.napaonlin...24_0362425456

Just double checking so that I don't burn anything out. You say above to go from fuse to neg. side of amp gauge. Looking at this diagram (link below) I found doesn't it look like it goes to the pos. side ? Look's like the wire that goes to bat. and solenoid goes to pos., or am I not following this correctly ? Thank's for your help. Ok, sorry, I was looking at wrong diagram, found the lighting diagram and it is as you stated. I thank you again !

Joe

Well picked up a in the panel fuse holder from Napa today and finished the wiring for the head lights.  :dancingbanana:  One lamp was burned out, have to pick up another but the other one works great. Just have to get the tail lights on and this portion of upgrades to the 1200 will be complete. Thank you LTD for the idea and link for Napa.
