Smile New Guy With Lots of Questions!!!

Hello Everyone. First, let me state how great it is to be part of a forum of individuals who know what quality is all about!!! I have a John Deere and 2 Cubs......had lots of problems with the John Deere and very few with one Cub and none at all with the other!!!

I am in the process of fixing up my dad's 1966 Cub Cadet 123 that I have had since he passed away. Recently, I found original lights and an original switch for it and I am trying to hook them up. I have two questions that the electrical diagram of the owner's manual did not address. The wire from the right head light to the left had the word "ground" on the diagram and a "y" shaped wire in the diagram, which I am told cannot be ordered anymore. Do I ground these wires (linking the left and right headlights together) behind the upper bolt of the regulator? Also, the wire that contains the fuse going to the magnetic switch, does it go to the top post (+ post), to the bottom post (- post) or to the side post (?????not for sure what it is????). Any assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Thanks In Advance,

Cub Cadet 123

Yes you link the left and right headlight together then ground that wire to the frame/grill/VR bolt.The fuse wire goes to the side of the solenoid that is not hot when the key is off!!
In the Techicanal library there is another diagram for your 123...Techinical library tractors.

By the way WELCOME Glad to have you here.

CUB CADET 123..





There is a Gentleman on E-Bay who hand makes wiring harnesses, and does high quality work. Some of the sponsors and vendors here sell his stuff (I believe).. It is well worth looking into..

He goes by mike316car ..


Good luck!!

Wow.....less than a 24 hr. member and already I have great advice from kind friends!!! Thanks a lot!!! I read on the 123 about how they were donated to circuses and painted with tiger (cub) stripes to demonstrate the reliability of the hydros. Now, I'm debating whether or not to paint tiger stripes on mine.........just for kicks.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
