Great score, Daniel. Can't wait for more pics. Glad she found a good home.

Been out tinkering on the 720. Byron (the seller) had bought a 2nd carb as he thought the body was worn at the throttle & choke shafts, but there was another problem getting a jet tube swapped to the replacement body. Turns out the original body was fine, as it was the shafts worn. So I swapped the shafts & all is snug like new. So I completed the first component....carb is ready! Now I have to clear my welding bench, as we need the cart table I now have this engine on to use in the rebuild of a 354ci Massey 1100 Perkins diesel. Need to straighten my whole shop while I'm at it.

rebuild of a 354ci Massey 1100 Perkins diesel.


The 720 is huge, but I don't think that will fit :confuse: Just saying......

Plus it would definitely require fitting power steering to it! LOL

Got the block scraped of heavy deposits & all the parts over onto my welding table. Also took the RF wheel off to fix the leak at the bead. The rim was fine on one side, but the other side pitted pretty deep. So sandblasted it off, shot heavy primer, let tack up, then spread some "Mega Grey" sealant on the bead seal area of the rim. Put the tire on, aired up & not a sign of a leak with a water test. Wheel back on tractor now. Hope it holds, but if not, she'll get a tube.

Here's pics of the 720 at "Home". Glad to finally own one & see it sitting here. I especially like the adjustment knobs on each lift arm. One rather odd thing is how the belly deck was raised. Cables run through pulleys from the lift arms then down over 2 more pulleys above the deck, then down to deck to lift it. Similar to my Massey 1010's setup. Would have been much neater just to have had another cylinder. I'll likely tie another set of remotes into the remote hydraulic lines that run to the front so the same valve can control either front or rear remotes. They only came with front remotes.
The thing is built strong. Love how the steering control arms are heavy cast units. And that tie rod is solid steel!

Byron even threw in this HEAVY built snow blade. Not sure if I'll use it, as it'll be a beast to mount! And check out the redneck speed steering spinner! LOL

Just honed the cylinders, then used bore gauges. Very little wear at all in the cylinders, so should run fine when rebuilt. Some very light scratch marks, but just to the eye...can't feel them at all.

Been filing down my block's intake & exhaust ports to match due to erosion on the exhaust ports. The intake actually appeared in the better shape, but is eroded more than the block. My neighbor has a large machine shop, so I'll have him match-level the intake ports for me. Gonna take longer to get the 720 under power than I thought. Just too much farm work to get done & hot as well. Hard to wanna get shop time when sweating like a slobbering dog! LOL
