For me that will not work. Over half my work is electrical and the rest is most fuel related with drive and deck problems. I actually got a JD Z950M coming in next deck lift problems most likely electrical in nature. I got to check with TB to see if they have a SM for it where I can look over the wiring before it arrives.

This why I spent so much time last year researching and sourcing the Dephi, AMP, and Molex terminals and connectors. I also brought multi 100ft spools of 18 and 16 gauge wire in about 8-10 different colors. I am looking the current Metri-Pack weather tight connectors. I just recently replace some 280 series on a Bobcat UTV. I don't see the need to replace whole wiring harness especially how hard they are to replace vs repairs.
