    That's right TxJim, in Argentina they were made with the original hand clutch, and then people chose to modify it, but I believe that job was done by a regular mechanic.. I'm no expert in this tractor's history though , truth be told :P

    It would be interesting to see the linkages for the foot clutch from hand clutch conversions. The clutch pulley cover in the photo I posted looks nothing like the OEM cover.

    Hi guys:
    With much effort I have managed to finish the paint job, as I'm really busy with work nowadays.. I still haven't had enough time to get 2 lousy batteries and try to start the beast again..I only have one "available" battery, the other one I have to extract from one of the vehicles, which is a pain in the a**
    anyway, I was wandering if any of you guys knows if the original decals can be shipped overseas, to Argentina actually, remember those decals are nowhere to be found in these latitudes..

    thanks in advance..

    Walter.

    Hi Guys, I posted a video where I finally got the tractor running after a really long time, you can see it here...

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq_jUIrcoto]John Deere 730 startup after 9+ years - YouTube[/ame]

    also, I posted a video with the startup-shotdown procedure for this tractor

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvXlLm_Nl6Q]John Deere 730 startup-shutdown procedure (24volts engine starter version) - YouTube[/ame]

    I hope you like them both, last year has been a particularly long and hard one, and this one looks like it's going to be the same way, so I take comfort in knowing I can still find some time to address to this hobby of mine...

    enjoy and cheers..

    I've been pecking away at restoring a 1951 Minneapolis Moline BF tractor for about 4 years. Hope to finish it this summer
