Saw this for sale and thought the fenders were way too big? What do y'all think?

600/800 fenders. The base of the rowcrops' fender is recessed to allow the fender to be in proper relation to the tire. Correct originals are hard to find.

Here's a 740 near me with correct, original fenders. The last picture gives a pretty good view of how the fit on the axle.
Someone liked Ford's advertising slogan from the late '60's! 😄

I think a 134 c.i. + 4 speed + 38 inch rears would make for a rather fast, and underpowered tractor. But it probably would look ok then.

Keep the 134 head and swap in a 192, problem solved

The others have it right. Pictures of row crop fender notches.
