Got a buddy that has more stuff setting in the woods, in several places, than the law allows. One of those pieces of 'stuff' is an old Case tractor. It's in pretty bad shape having set out in the woods, in the open, for years. Still I can see potential in the old girl with an engine rebuild (plugs left out, unfortunately) and some TLC...especially since I can do the majority of thw work myself and the price is except for trading this tractor and an old 630 Bobcat for some mechanic work on his good equipment.

My biggest problem is iedntifying exactly what model Case it is. First it's a 4 cylinder gas engine, has headlights in the grill(places the age around '58 from what I've found), on th sides origionally had a Case name plate on the sides of the nose and then a chrome strip along each side of the hood at the rear. The rear tires have flat spoked rims and weights and the rubber stands about 4-5 feet tall (approx). It has a three point hitch on the rear, power steering at the front, and an adjustable front axel length. The part about the Case-O-matic transmission is something I could just make out through the pealing/flaking paint. Beyond that I have no clue as to what model or anything else the machine is. Any advice on where to look for any actual identifying numbers, etc would be greatly appreciated. Or if you have some idea based on the description what model it is please let me know and I'll research it from there.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Wayne

Thanks for the responses. I've looked at this thing twice but unfortunately have yet to find a data plate anywhere. The three point on this tractor looks to me like a standard three point with the balls, not the claw. As far as the front axel it's a tubular axel and appears to be adjustable. Something I forgot to mention earlier is that the wheel base, front to back, measures out to be around 7 feet, center of axel to center of axel. I know this isn't much info to identify a machine like this but I'm at least in the ball park now. Hopefully I'll get time to recruit my neighbor to go with me one weekend here soon and get the old girl drug out of the woods and back here to my house. Hopefully I can also talk the guy out of a small Gibson that's also setting there rusting away....and maybe the M John Deere too.....According to him it's all going to scrap one of these days unless somebody else does something with it...and I like being 'the scrap man'..LOL

Case-O-Matic rules out 430.
Swivel ball 3 point hitch (non-eagle hitch) likely rules out all B series and early 30 series including all 630s.
Tall tires rule out 530s. Most likely its a mid to late model 730 or 830.

Thanks, I'll find some pics and see what, if anything, I can figure out on this thing.

The plate with the model and serial number was usually on the side of the sheet metal which forms the dash. Another indicator is the three point hitch, swinging arms with limiting chains and normal ball in the end are the later model. The eagle hitch, looks like three point, but the arms do not swing and the hitch is sort of like an upturned claw, comes up under the hitch pins on the implement. What front axle does it have? Some likely models are 411B, 511B, 430, 530 or 630. The gas engine on those would be a 148, 159 or 164 cu/in displacement. Larger 4
cylinder on the 700-800 series.

Sounds to me like a 600b case or my best guess. It should have 36" rear tires and eagle hitch.
