Any 200 series that runs is worth $500 by itself. Sometimes the plows bring $500, heck if you bought that one you could almost consider the tractor as free since it comes with a blade. I say go for it.
The wiring harness is pretty straight forward. If that is determined to actually be the problem, go ahead and get the new one, and then just unplug one part of the old one, plug the corresponding new plug in that location, and so on until its all in. Not very hard at all. The 100 series don't have all the shields that the larger ones like my sold 140 and the 300 I have.
