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.
