    Info on the zetor UR1 7 series

    Hi

    i recently got hold of a zetor 6718 and I know bugger all about it.
    i think Iím right in saying that the engine is the UR1 7 series but Iím struggling to find anything out about them. Can I still get hold of a work shop manual?
    are they good engines, reliable, easy starters?
    any information or advice would be very helpful. Cheers

    Usually a good,reliable engine that starts in all weathers but you will need to use the excess fuel button on the inj pump.(Throttle full open and push the button in--it will come back out when shutting off after starting).
    Brakes are usually a problem on them.........or lack of. Master cylinders leak,slave cylinders leak,auto adjusters seize and the original brake linings were just too hard IMO. Not difficult or overly expensive to overhaul.

    All the same base tractor and engine......
    6711-no factory cab,2wd
    6718-Zetor cab
    6745-no cab,4wd
    6748-Zetor cab,4wd.

    There are workshop manuals on ebay for £5 on cd or £25 in book form,or if you register with The Classic Machinery Network forum, there's one in the download section for free.Don't know how comprehensive it is though!

    They seem to be getting popular for pulling fishing cobles out of the sea locally which says something since they live on the high tide mark in constant sea spray.
    The tinwork is a sight to behold but good starters.
    The previous go to for it was Fordson Majors still a few of those hanging on
