Other then the lights and grill, is there much difference between the early and late model 700 series? Specifically, the 712H models? Thanks!

Other than the differences you've mentioned, I don't believe there's any difference, unless it's with the very late 700 series. My 7018 Simplicity and my friend's 718 Allis both have the later style (900 series) steering shaft and steering wheel (held on by a nut under the steering wheel hub cap, rather than a bolt through the hub). My 7018 has the 900 series style of flip up seat, but my friends 718 has the seat bolted directly to the seat deck. Since both tractors were purchased from the same guy, we aren't sure if these differences are original or not. What creates the doubt is that two of my 900 series tractors have the old style steering column and steering wheel with the bolt through the steering wheel hub. Hard to believe they'd start a new style, go back to an older style, then back again to the newer style.
