As some of you know, I acquired a JD750 CUT yesterday.

Here's where it stands so far:

Once I got it home, I installed a good battery to check the electrical and starting system. The starter would not engage. After some testing, I determined the problem was in the starter. I disassembled it and found corrosion at the solenoid contacts. Once I got it clean and reassembled, I bench tested it and it now works as it should.

With 1190 hours showing on the Tach, other than maintenance items, all parts look the be original to the tractor, even the tires.
The engine clutch is stuck. This usually happens when the tractor is set up for an extended amount of time, with the clutch engaged. The high humidity down here isn't much help either. I'll unstick the clutch after I'm done servicing the engine and transmission/hydraulic system.
Below is an example from the JD owners manual touching on this subject.

IMPORTANT: Avoid damage! Clutch must remain disengaged when tractor is placed in long term storage. Corrosion can cause the clutch disk to seize to the pressure plate and the clutch can no longer be disengaged.


I don't have the correct engine oil filter, so I'll have to purchase that, along with a fuel filter and air filter.
I also drained the fuel tank and to my surprise, was very clean. I'll replace all fuel lines. They were not leaking, but the outer surface is dry and cracked. I have a couple 25' rolls of 3/8" fuel line here in my shop.

I removed the engine oil and transmission/hydraulic oil drain plugs to allow the oil to drain overnight. Next was removing the suction(sump) screen from the trans case to inspect. The screen is in good condition and is clean, with no metal, or fiber material present.

I tested the engine coolant and is good for -20°f. The coolant system test was good with no leaks. I'll retest after the engine is run to operating temperature.

Radiator cap looks to be original and the seal is still in good condition.

The cap pressure hold up to it's 9 psi rating.

More to come.

The Masked Cool White Rides Again!!!!!! Congrats on the new toy! :good2: I really like that series, the 6xx thru 9xx.

One request.....Could you maybe, possibly, step away from the 750 about 15 feet or so and snap a pic or two??!! :laugh:

I mean the close up of it peeing diesel in a bucket is interesting and all but some of us are big picture kind of guys! :hi:

Thank goodness you started a thread for this 750, I was expecting a lynch mob would be sent out for you if you didn't.:lol:


Although by the sounds of Titleist1's post above, you may not be in the clear just yet. Better lay low.:hide2:

OK, mr. antique TV picture tube look alike avatar. :lol: I guess I'm following rydplrs's lead at close ups. :mocking: Besides, it's to leave you in suspense. Anyway, I posted a sneak peek earlier. I'm guessing you didn't see that. Or, could it be a touch of Dementia creeping up on ya?

When I get the 750 running and out of my cramped shop, I'll post a Full Frontal and Profile.

Oil, air & fuel filters from one of my friend's NAPA store. He was so excited to see me buying from him, he gave me a discount.

Point Up.jpg

I actually typed the post above after lunch. Mrs.FW called asking for the phone number to my sandblaster friend , and I forgot to hit the Submit Button. :hide:

After servicing the old gal, I cranked it. Had to bleed the fuel system a couple times. It runs good. :good2:

I jumped the safety start switch, shifted it in 7th gear and cranked it. I drove it around the yard with the clutch pedal depressed while hitting the brakes. I did this multiple time with no luck of releasing the clutch.
I tried each gear and all are working fine with no unusual noise.
The clutch release(throw-out) bearing is making nose, so I'll need to split it anyway. I'll most likely replace the clutch and pressure plate while I've got it apart.
I haven't attached anything to the 3 point hitch, but it raises and lowers as it should. :thumbup1gif:

It missing the front screen, side screens, light bezel and headlights.

The dash is cracked and the fender-mounted warning lights are history.

The tires look like OC(age cracked), but all are holding air. :laugh: I'll replace the front tire(~ $120 pair) to begin with, then replace the rear as needed.

The hood and fender will receive loving care from my BIL, who is a body man(politically correct →auto body technician).

Besides the $500 purchase price, I spent $27 so far. I had the engine oil and hydraulic in my shop. I figure if I spend another $500-$700 on getting her properly operational and looking good, I'll still be way ahead of the game. :bigthumb:

Stay tuned. There's more to come.

Don't forget to put some coolant additive in the old girl. Most people don't keep up on this.
Thanks for the reminder.:thumbup1gif: Got some coolant additive on the shelf.

pretty good deal.

Looks like you got a couple hundred bucks worth of suitcase weights to offset your purchase price. :thumbup1gif:

Aside for that unwarranted wisecrack about OC, "The tires look like OC(age cracked), but all are holding air", looking
pretty good so far.
I'll also have you know the wimmins think my age cracks make me look rugged, just saying. :thumbup1gif: :laugh:

Too bad about the noisy throw out bearing, clutch and having to split it, ain't but a little hill for a mountain climber like you. :good2:
