I have been doing a resto on my Original, disassembled, sandblasted, primed, and painting. As I’m reassembling, I’m wondering about correct wiring routing. Since I don’t know if mine was factory when I started, not sure how all the wiring should be done. Could someone post pictures of their machine showing wiring on each side and under the hood? Pictures show progress so far. Unusually warm fall weather has helped with blasting and painting outside and bringing inside to dry. This is my first attempt at repainting. Just using CIH rattle cans on this one.

Thanks, my shop doubles as mancave, wood shop, auto shop, and Cub shop. And 1 deer skinned out so far this year! Post those “O” pictures if you got some!

There are some photos of Dan Hoefler's Original that I posted in the thread linked below. Most of the photos are of his Custom Cub Cadets but his Original is stock. The Original photos are near the bottom of the linked page.

Dan Hoeflers Custom Cub Cadets.

My Original is stored at the family farm or I would go get some photos for you. I will be at the farm tomorrow evening so I could get some photos for you if the photos of Dan's don't show the details you are looking for.

Those are good photos, thanks! Couple questions, what color should the dash decal be? Black, white , or silver? I’ve seen all 3 for sale. How is the + wire routed to the coil? Mine was just looped around back of engine from generator to the coil. Has anyone seen the grill casting shimmed to make it lean forward? Mine was upon disassembly, without the shims in stands straight up which pushes the hood back and it hits the steering wheel. I have to shim with a flat washer or it doesn’t work correctly, Any other photos are greatly appreciated.

Check the bottom frame flange where the grill casting is supported.
It may be bent up which would tilt the top of the casting rearward.

Just as you suspected, it was bent slightly, tweaked it down a little and it fits nice. I’m down to choke cable, driveshaft, and a couple decals and the tractor should be done. Hope to get the deck torn down, blasted and primed this weekend. Would be nice to find an original seat someday.

The dash decal should be silver, and textured. Here's a reproduction one that I have on my Original:

Where did you get yours from?
I bought it from forum member Kent Shultz back in the early 2000's sometime before 2008. I believe he had a few of them custom made when he was restoring his Original and I was lucky enough to get one of his spares.
