I'm guessing you don't have the FL-32 500 Hz filter installed. I always did. With the 500 Hz filter, to run the RX as narrow as the 897D is (for PSK31), you'd want to run SPLIT, with VFO A on SSB to allow PSK31 transmission, and VFO B on CW but set to the same frequency to allow reception using the 500 Hz filter. Works like a charm and makes the 735 exactly as narrow as the 897D selected to 500 Hz. Try it! It works...
