You say 24 FPS, is the three-quarter inch tape shot in PAL or NTSC? You'd need a PAL version of the umatic deck to handle the euro format.
There are numerous cottage services that maintain these old decks and make transfers for you. If the footage is short, they're usually more cost-effective than DIY solutions where you need to buy the deck and recondition it yourself.

And another thing: when you do the frame rate conversions, bear in mind that the actual film frame rate in NTSC-Land is 23.976, sometimes erroneouosly called 23.98. It's not 24... and those tiny fractional differences can come back to bite you later.
