Hi new to the group.

I just picked up a C81 that needs alot of tlc.

 The wiring harness has been butchered pretty bad. Are there any aftermarket ones I could purchase?

I'm not sure if there are harness kits available. It's fairly easy to rewire manually.

There are a couple great schematic diagrams floating around made / modified by our members.

I can send one later today but someone else will likely beat me to it.

 

Best advice for electrical work on these tractors.... Clean EVERYTHING electric.

Bad ground is likely what caused the previous owner to shred your harness.

You are correct, After finding the electrical drawings I was able to see the where the issues were. I was pleased to her it run after setting for several years. 

What i found was several misplaced wiring, missing wiring the wrong ignition switch and the points where stuck. took me about a day to get it all lined out. 

Now Im in the process of replacing worn out parts. Is there a manual that shows interchangeability lets say a steering stem from a c81 is the same on a d80?

Good to hear you're up and cooking.

 

I don't personally know about the interchange stuff but the guys at A to Z tractor might be able to help you.

Thanks for your assistance. Once I took the challenge of learning the components I couldn't stop till i heard it fire up. Im a industrial electrician for Dairy farmers of America and own a plumbing service company so that helps with fuel and wiring issues lol.

No worries. You had that thing right from the start. Just had to get your ducks in a row.

 Hardly any parts interchange between a C series and D series... 

 

You can see the parts listing for your tractor here

I just realized you had asked about d series here.

 

I don't know of any manual but there is some interchange between

 

C and B ... 

 

not D.

 

Many of the more experienced members and the guys at a - z could help you with that.

      Just letting everyone know I have a brand new new sealed package wiring harness for a wheel horse c120

      i bought out a small engine repair shop of all their NOS parts. Mostly chain saw, trimmer parts but this gem was in the box. They use to be a wheel horse dealer. It is the only wheel horse part I found. Available this week on eBay our user name is caseyfamily9102

      Ok, so recently I picked up a 1978 D-250 (81-20RG01) and mechanically it looks really solid. Cosmetically it's a mess but that's no big deal. The problem is the wiring looks like a rats nest! Things spliced all over, and nothing electrical works properly. (Most not at all) When I bought it I thought, No big deal, I'll pick up a wiring harness and see where I stand from there. Here's the problem...I can't find a part number for the wiring harness anywhere! When I do a parts lookup all I see is individual wires listed. Please don't tell me that out of all the wiring harness' I see for sale everywhere (only listed by part #'s) that one doesn't exist for the 250? Am I missing something here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
