    In post What did you do on or to your John Deere GT today - Page 197 I described how I modified the chin trim piece of my X754. Since I was in my regular hardware store yesterday, I picked up a speed-nut or whatever they are called and modified the modification a bit.



    If you hold your tongue just right and squint you'll see the thumbscrew to the left of the negative battery cable. The thumbscrew rubs a bit on the trim piece, so the next time the hood is off I may just get a regular hex head bolt for it.

    Grrr, I keep posting what I call "useless information" ! But, here I go again!

    mj, The speed nut, as you call it, has several names: U-nut/clip, extruded nut, J-clip and several more. Extruded nut is probably the most popular and they can be purchased at most auto parts stores.

    Now, for some...hopefully...helpful info! Replacing the thumb screw with a hex head screw will still leave edges for the Neg. cable to abrade against. Although it may be difficult to locate, consider a "button head screw". The top is totally round and is installed/removed using a hex key/allen wrench. A "Plan B" could be 10 or 12 wraps of electrical tape around the Neg. cable. Bob

    I knew there was a proper name for the nut; it just escaped me at the time of posting. As for the negative cable, it sits higher than it appears in the photo. A button-head screw would work; but it would mean having hex keys close at hand, which in my case is not the case.

    I spent a pleasant few hours this afternoon/evening finishing up the aeration of yard. The frequent rains have drug this process out for several weeks now, but today was a good day to finish. I’m very pleased with the LP aerator and of course it was nice to be in the seat of the 738 too. What a great machine. Hopefully this will be one step in improving the health of this yard. It needs all the help it can get.

    The weather was cool (~60F), the ground dry, and I had some ambition to mow for the first time this season. Depending on how wet the summer is will determine how many more times I have to mow the weeds this year. I'll be a happy camper if it's no more than two more times; one sometime in July and the last one towards the end of September.

    If nothing else knocking down the weeds today should keep the HOASS off my back for the time being.

    Site prep and cleanup

    I have a decently irregular yard, and I have wanted to expand it out a bit, drop the grade some, and have a nice flat area for a shed and play area for the kids. Finally got into it. I dropped about 15 trees, did the heavy lifting with a 6 ton excavator, and the x730 was my Lil' Buddy! The little buck loader was on wood detail, the front blade helped even out the land. Now I just need to get a landscape rake/cultivator through it and get it ready to plant.

    It's accurate enough to be dangerous. Had my friend stand on it that weighs 295#s, it read 300#s. So good enough.

    Changed the fuel filter on the X758... Fun location smh.
    Removed the "do not touch this" cap on the throttle today and turned the screw out some. Then adjusted the throttle cable to be a little tighter. Runs a little more faster now. This thing has been STRUGGLING. Mowing down 7 inches and mulching with the 60 inch deck is making it cry every 4 days on roughly 4 acres total. After bumping up the WOT a little bit it helped a ton to keep it from wanting to bog down.
    Going to start looking at turbo/fuel options to give it that little bit more of an edge.

    No one take this as me being unhappy with the X758. It's still able to mow it where my buddies parents z turn with a 48 inch deck can't even stay running in this stuff.

    It's hard to leave a diesel alone. I wonder who that guy is.

    Did some mowing saturday, and I think this was the first time that I remember this thing starting almost right away from a cold start.
