I got lucky and a friend of mine actually located the rear cover for me, it's not perfect, the center of it has been welded and repaired from some sort of accidental close encounter, but that did not matter to me. It's factory, holds oil, and was priced right, that's all that matters. I did have a line on another one several months ago in the souther part of the country but they wanted good money for it. I can try to put you in contact with them if you would like. As far as the weight and support issue goes that is a good question. To my knowledge there was never a different spec for maximum ballasted weight for a 730 diesel dependent on the rear housing it came with, so that would lead me to believe that the factory flat back should offer enough support to match what the large rear cover could do. But if you look at it another way, without the three point their probably was'nt any way you could ever put enough stress on the rear axle housing to break it so alot of support from the rear cover probably wasent necessary with no three point hitch installed, if you can follow my line of thought there. You could kill two birds with one stone and put the flat back on and use wheel weights instead of suite case weights, that way the majority of the weight is being carried by just the rims and tires and not being transfered through the chassis of the tractor, just a thought.
