    Repower from KT series to Magnum wiring needs.

    When Replacing a KT series engine with a Magnum series it is a not too complicated repower but there are some special things needed for the wiring. Jon is going to get a diagram drawn up for this topic and he said go ahead and get a topic started, some of you guys on here might have some input on this. I will add pictures when we do the wiring on my repower, but not quite there yet.

    You are only as old as you make yourself.

    I'll get to drawing up a diagram as soon as I can. If anyone else wants to jump in, or even draw one up, that is great. I'm pretty tied up for another day or two.

    Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

    I've got a lot of Cubs in the barn....but I have more implements/attachments!


      When I did my Command repower on my 782 I used an 1811 ignition switch, and then found the wiring diagrams for my 782 (by serial #, as there are 2 or 3 versions), 1811, and Command engine online, and putting the 3 together I was able to figure out what wire needed to be where on the switch, and then modify/fabricate the tractor harness for the Command. Took a little time and thinking but wasn't bad.

      Some guys use a shut off relay on Mag swaps as well, but I am not familiar with that so I can't comment on it.
