New member in Spain - wheel horse 702

Recommended Posts

Hi GlenPettit,


This is the original dash panel of my 702 wheel horse tractor. The colour is what you can see.


Now I'm in restoration process and I cleaned it all with water. I will paint it in a few days. When I finish it I will post some photos.

I need some help because my 702 need the 2 screws that hold the round hood. I need to buy this screws. But today here in Spain I don't know where to buy them.
Someone here can say me where can buy a pair of those?
I know a guy who knows how to work the metal and steel and I asked if I could make two copies, but need to know the size of these screws are in inches.
Looking for here in the forum I saw that someone said they are this size: All three are part wh # 1271 1/4 - 20x 3/8 bolt stove. These are standard hardware items. The originals were straight slot pan head screw type heads. The thumb screws which were used as the 701/552/702/753/etc Such models. That had the fuel tanks at the rear of the hood.
If you know someone or somewhere to find some of them I will appreciate that.
Thank you for your time and dedication.

Hi Sergi,

              May be worth starting a new Topic in the 'Euro Horse Forum' to cover the work on your 702.


However, the help you need on the Hood bolts is confusing me. I am not familiar with your model, but  I am happy to try and help you if nobody else can.

Do you require the Hood Thumb Screws ?. On my 702 parts list, the numbers are different to #1271 ....see below- 




I do not know if they are still available.


If you cannot find them , or have them made in Spain. then maybe I can make them for you and send them out.

I would need a good close picture so that I can make them identical to the original ones......if someone could help with that.

After those days I have asked for help, I have good news.


I said I knew a guy who could make an exact copy. He has done an amazing job. The thumb screws has been made ​​of stainless steel that will not rust. I put a picture of how they have been after all. Finally I don't need to buy them with this awesome work.




Thank you so much for your fast responses. I'm very happy for that. 


I think I can finally finish the restoration in a few weeks. It is a reminder and a tribute to my great-grandfather.

      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!

      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.
