    Default John Deere 730 rebuild

    Hi guys:
    I'm from Argentina and I'm currently rebuilding an old 1959 John Deere 730, which was made in Argentina back in the day. I thought it could be interesting for you guys to see this rebuild. The tractor has some imported American parts, such as the engine starter and generator. Please give it a look, and if you can, give me some feedback on the matter.
    Here is the link to my blog:

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: I forgot to mention that the language is spanish, but I think you can translate it with some google tool , should be no problem..
    cheers!

    Loved the 30 series.!! One sharp tractor style. A buddy of mine had an 830,and to me, that thing was awesome..!!

    He had a 720 diesel too, and got to run both some years if he was behind on planting.

    I thought those S. American 2 cyl's had a foot clutch instead of hand clutch. Nice pic's.

    DJ54: The original decals are certainly a possibility, I have to check if they ship those to Argentina though..

    Tx Jim: Here some people choose to modify the original hand clutch to a pedal system, but that is not my case. Personally, I prefer the hand clutch

    cheers!

    if you want authentic vintage Deere decals there is only one place to go:

    Jorde's Decals
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    I thought the foot clutch was what JD offered not the hand clutch. Here's some photos of a nice one with a foot clutch
