Hi all, this winter I will be restoring my T140E and was wondering what experience people have had with after market wire harnesses. Recommended manufactures, negative, positive, pitfalls, any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

As it is, Andy

I can't think of the name brands, but the two or three different aftermarket harnesses I've tried have all worked perfectly well every time.

A big key is that they are typically replaced at the same time that modern electronics are added such as rectifiers & ignition systems, so ALWAYS use good quality connectors and proper crimping/soldering to maintain the overall electrical system integrity.
