I start her up every 6 months or so. Always fires on second turn. Wife says to insure both or get rid of. I'm near retirement so maybe then and will drive her more.

Do me a favor, if you ever decided to get rid of the 710 look me up first, at least give me a crack at taking it off your hands :)


PROUD OWNER OF A 74' B210!!  But still pining for a 710...

Assuming I did start the '74 on the last post it hasn't been started until today.... over a year of sitting  Hardest part was getting the jumper cables on snug. Dribbled some weed eater gas in the carb and voila! One turn and fired right up. Moved it over a meter or so because we're putting a small shed up in the driveway. Brakes are sad. Thinking about putting it in storage.

That old girl always did fire up well after sitting. When I first got it in Vic the original owners had passed away so I have no idea how long it sat, we used a come along to load it but I'm pretty sure it drove off the trailer with a fresh battery lol

When used somewhat regularly it fires on less than a turn. It turned over really slowly till I got the battery cables on properly but maybe the carb was empty. Dribble of gas and bang on the first turn again. Always was a great starter. Has new exhaust on it.
