I started by pretty much building a wiring harness from scratch. Really helps when I got the factory bolens diagrams and another tractor with the same harness.
I then had to swap cables as the original ones had been cut for an engine swap.
Today was spent running around trying to find the correct 12pt engine mounting bolts, couldn't find em so I used Allen heads instead.
Got the motor mounted,hooked up the cables and three a battery In choked it and hit the key. She lit up and runs decent.
Just have a few little issues to get worked out, also have to run wire for the lights and figure out the plugs for the stator and the rectifier, tractor currently won't turn off with the key. The motor has some sort of apparatus on the shroud where the wires are and the plugs don't match, I'll get a pic tomorrow
All in all not too bad for a few hours of work.
