/ A couple of pictures of the 730 I drug home. Not sure if it was a good idea or not, time will tell.

Thanks guys, this will probably be an on going project, if I had a big pot"O" cash it would be a pretty straight foward restoration, it is a good candidate. As it is I will be finding things as I go, hope to loosen the motor and get it to run to evaluate the rest of the tractor. Paul where are your tires and what do you need for them, right now I am looking for some tires that hold air,just to be able to move it, good tires will be later. Are the 8 speed transmissions a good durable unit? The wide front it has right now is OK till I get some other things sorted out, thank you for the offer though.

Mike, You can make it look like a new one if you have vision for what it can be. Takes time and money and a lot of TLC, but you can get it there. It'll make a fine machine and that was a good save. ---Derrol in Texas---

I have a original case wide front for it if you were interested and a pair of used 14.9x38 rears that would look good on that tractor.

I am located in central Iowa(Melbourne). Most of the mechanical parts shouldn't be too awful for price, I am looking into that now. Tires and paint can be jaw dropping in this day and age. I need to see how the corn and beans are going to turn out before I get too carried away.

If you do all the work yourself, you should be able to make out alright, complete overhaul/fluid flush and tires and some paint, should be good other than that, until you get it going it's hard to tell though.

As of right now, I would like to restore it and use it. I have always kinda liked the looks of them. There are not many of them in this area. When they put out the fire, they must have got water in the engine through a bad spot in the manifold,looking through the spark plug hole, number one cylinder is pretty grim,. The rear rims have had fluid in them and are shot. On the good side it appears to be all there, the sheet metal is pretty straight, and it has power steering. it shows 3200 hours, but who knows. I paid 800.00 for it, going to do some research on what I think fix up costs will be and then decide what to do. Any opinions welcome.
