Marty and others, Harbor Freight has free meters with a coupon. They work well enough to take care of all Cubs problems. If the meter gives you problems, just step on it and get another one!

But then I got a call telling me my big red IH400 was ready, more in the proper posting page IH cubs larger reletives.

Earl F - hey I think you still saved a ton of money. If you had gone to a shop they likely would have charged for a new switch, solenoid and wiring harness plus labor :-)

A multimeter (voltmeter) is a wonderful tool!

I have purchased unnecessary parts as you until I finally learned to test first if you can. A great comment so we all remember.

Oh wow is it bright in here now. Charlie are those new bulbs the LED type? Sure do look nice. Did you get yourself a LED flashlight while you were there?

This isn't so much a question as to helping others with any electrical problems they happen to come across. I hear time and time again from the great Cub gurus that checking the basic wiring connections between switches, v/r's, gen, etc. is a great place to start and find an easy solution, usually. In my (in)finite wisdom I had a starting problem on one of my 1450's. turn key to start, nothing. key on, jump solenoid, fires up. OK, solenoid went bad, it's the original. Replace with new, same problem. Pop plug off switch, jump and it turns over, OK, bad switch, swap out. Same problem, play with connector and 2 wires break off. I guess the good thing is I now have a new switch and solenoid for the future. And just the other day I suggested to someone their dead battery might be an easy issue. left the dome light on, saw it as soon as the jumper cables were connected, the door was closed and it was night.
So I humbly suggest to check, and maybe recheck the wires/connections before you start buying and replacing parts. At least if I had switched with known good parts, or tested the old I would not have been out the wasted time to the store. I do believe in 'extra' parts, got a shed full of them!


Charlie, thanks for turning the lights back on! My follies need to be known

They had a 50% off sale on light bulbs today at Fleet Farm!

That and Myron B. brightened my day (pun intended) a whole lot, and I have to THANK him for that!

I guess I forgot to shut the lights off when I left last night, so I'll handle that around noon or so today, since nothing is happening to keep it on!
