Re: 1929 Murray Rear Fenders

Sedan rear fenders are the same for both Briggs and Murray. Depends on what a lot of work means. Might check with your local club, people always have things squirreled away.

Re: Wiring harness clip location

As far as I know they can go wherever you want them to go. There is no set place as it just keeps the wiring loom in the frame rail. This way it doesn't flop down and get damaged by anything.
