Yep the M35a2 harness should work just fine. Some circuits may be a little long and some might be short, but it's not hard to make it work. I helped a buddy use one on a gutted M37 he rebuilt. The key was downloading all the wiring diagrams from the manuals for both and comparing the circuit numbers to see where they go. Because the military tags each circuit with a metal tag with numbers it makes it super easy to figure out were each one goes.

Update. The front rewiring was completely successful. It starts with the foot starter and no odd burning electrical smell was noted. No issues with the deuce wiring. It only took time to unwrap the loom and rewrap as necessary. And a bit of brain power to make sure the circuits were correct.

I am waiting for Brown Santa to bring the rear harness next.

When the magic smoke stays inside the wires, it is a job well done.

Otherwise, you might need to read up about English wiring procedures:
