Really? I had no idea. I thought the numbers were just on each end. I'll have 
to look at one of my old, really torn up harnesses to see that.

I know that aircraft wiring harnesses have IDs printed every inch or so, which 
makes sense, because then not matter where you are you can identify a 
wire. But marking every 6" seems like it would be unlikely to end up with a 
number right at the start and finish of each wire.
