New member in Spain - wheel horse 702

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Mi name is Fito from Valencia, Spain. Last week I found this old wheel horse 702 in a town close to me and I couldn´t keep me away from buying it. After 20 year without use, I plugged a new battery, revised oil level, filled the gas tank and it started in two minutes!

 

It is in very good conditions with all the original parts and no modifications, all users manuals very well conserved. Originally bought in 1966 here in Spain. I am in love with it, also with the girl driving it!

 

Nice to find other proud owners in Europe!

Hi Fito, welcome to RS, good to see that you both seem to love that horse. You've found a couple of gems there!

Thank you all for your kind welcome messages!

 

I have to say sorry for my english...

 

This afternoon I will try to find some parts to start basic tuning:

- Air filter

- New oil

- Sparking plug

- V Belts

- gas pipe replacement

- electric wiring

 

- I´ve noticed that gas tank has a little leak that must be repaired

- The exhaust pipe is broken (see picture) this will be hard to find here in Spain...

- There is no V belt in hydraulic unit, must find one (does anyone know de dimensions or reference of this V belt?

- Now it´s only running with closed choke, every time I slowly try to open it, the motor stops. Also with closed choke, the motor stops in about one minute. Carburetor adjustment is necessary (is there any tutorial out there on how to do it?)

 

I will keep uploading photos with advances, it´s really nice to find this forum!

 

Fito,

Hi,

Thank you for your welcome messages!

I was very busy last weeks and I didn´t have time to answer before, I am sorry.

 

Returning to the 702, I´ve been doing some work:

 

The good things:

New air filter

New V belts

New motor oil

New batteries

Tires repaired

New sparking plug

New gas pipe

Gas tank leak repaired

Hydraulic unit leak repaired, new belt and working!

 

The bad news:

As the problem with carburetor persist, I brought it to a mechanic to clean it. He told me that I need a new one because there is "looseness" inside. =( so it seems that it´s necessary to change the carburetor, and I don´t know how to find one here in Spain. Do you know where to find parts that be able to send it to Spain? I will appreciate any help here =)

 

 

The problem:
Motor is only running with closed choke, every time I slowly try to open it, the motor stops. Also with closed choke, the motor stops in about one minute. It´s like there is no suction force to aspire the gas. Do you think that carburetor replacement is the solution?
 
thank you!

Welcome!!

Hi Sparky, it´s the plate number (V4700) "V" from Valencia, Spain.

sounds like lack of fuel - not sure which engine you have, it could be the fuel pump (if it has one) or the jets are blocked in the main needle. There are a few tiny pin holes that can be clogged, they must be clean straight through.

is the carb getting enough fuel? anyway did you take it apart yourself, or just the mechanic that said scrap it?

Hi Neil,

I only know about 3 tractors in Spain thanks to the user maps. It seems that it´s had to find here in Spain.

I recently discovered that now I will look after three, there is a babe coming! We didn´t knew it when I took the picture, but she was pregnant at this moment ^___^

      Picked up this little gem from  @Shynon Saturday morning. Met with Tom, his son Mike @prondzy, son in law Scott & @Terry M at a restaurant off I90/94 & had a nice breakfast & some  chat. They were on an all day & most of the night quest  to buy and deliver some horses in IL and IA. Also got a nice tub for my son in law @Rp.wh for yard work & tub rides for his young'uns...an early birthday present from his mom!
      I bought this tractor for my wife Cindy who was born in 1962 so now we have a '59, ( the year I was born) a '60, '61 & now the 702. She wants me to paint the tractor candy apple red & Tom says it was a good candidate for a repaint ( his 1st resto ) but I beg to differ.. paint looks good to be but you guys be the judge! Plans for this tractor right now is odd jobs around the ranch and to pull Dino's @stevasaurus 8 inch plow just for fun! Mike informed me he broke the motor in plowing with it for 5 hours.  Also Cindy's ride around at shows! Gonna haul wood with it today& quickly becoming my favorite & go to tractor!  Excuse me while I go change my handle!
       
      Enjoy

      I have a 702 with a blade and Mower thay has been sitting for a couple years so I thought if I was going to get it going I may as well do it right.  I don't have a lot of time and was hoping someone could refer me to someone that does restorations.  I'd like to get the tractor back in good running condition so just a mechanical restoration and some clear coat to preserve the patina.  I'm in northern Illinois if anyone knows of someone to refer me to.  Thanks in advance for the advice.
