I have a GP with serial number 223803 built january 8, 1931. The tractors that were actually rebuilt small bores will sometime show 2 serial numbers when they are researched. One number is the origonal small bore number and the other number is the new number deere gave the tractor when it was updated. These early big bore tractors have main bearing caps held in place with a single set screw, a low radiator (it's a small bore radiator),no heat shield under the tank, the engine has a breather/filler in the crankcase cover like the A's do, the oil filter sets right in the hole for the red head oil pressure indicator, and of course the big bore block and intake wth the ensign K caburetor. I have seen an origonal Deere parts flyer that offered an update kit to bolt the big bore stuff into your old small bore tractor.

I don't have any pictures of on my computer. I restored it over 20 years ago. I have had it at several NYS Expo's. When I had it researched it came back with just one number, so it may not have been ever built as a small bore. The thing I have found with JR Hobbs research on GP's, is he tended to fill in gray areas of information with his own slant. My GP was sold new by Melvin Implement in Baldinsville NY.
