Sat lots of hours on a pair of 756's. loved them dearly.
First thing to do IMHO, would be, with engine cold, as in not started for a few days, crack the oil plug loose, and check for any antifreeze coming out past the threads. The Neuss engines were problematic for that.
Next, see how it starts cold, if injection pump is weak or not timed properly, they can start hard, also if down on compression due to wear. Valve recession can cause this too.
Don't be too alarmed if it slobbers fuel out around the exhaust manifold, common if they idle around too much, especially in cold weather.
Check shifters and linkage for proper adjustment, and all the other items just like your 706.
With decent care, that engine should have plenty of life left.
Oh yeah, stay on top of fuel filter maintenence. Seen lots of those inj pumps trashed by water damage, especially on machines that sit unused a lot.
