501 is the series. The 541 was an individual model within the series. The middle digit varied depending on what transmission, PTO and hydraulics options that it came with.
The 501 series was the offset chassis version of the 134 CI gas or 144 ci diesel row crop tractors. The non-offset row crop version with those sized engines was the 701 series, and the non-row crop ag chassis version was the 601 series.
The 541 was a 501 with the 4 seed transmission, 3 point lift and non-live PTO. The 4 speed was only available with the non-live PTO, so since it has a 4 speed in it now, it is a 541, and the only difference between it and any other model in the 501 series is that other specific models would have a different transmission and possibly different PTO options.
The parts site only shows the 4 speed and Select-O-Speed transmissions for the 501, so I would venture to guess that there were only the 541, 571 and 581 models available within that series, but I can't say for sure, as the parts site does list the 541 as a specific model, but it doesn't list the 571 or 581 models individually even though it does show the S-O-S trans with the single and dual speed PTO as being available for the 501 series.
