Dont get me wrong,I like the "1030" but in our area,we had the following issues:ring gear and pinion,water pump and then fan hitting radiator,brakes.
So ask questions,find out whats been done.Maybe the above wont effect you,but if this "1030" has been up in the Dakota's,it was pulled!

Another thing to consider if you need a PTO. 1030's were considered too powerful for a 540 PTO and all came with 1000 rpm style PTO. They can be switched to 540 rpm by using the shaft & gears from a 930. Not an easy job, but not too difficult to do.

Don't know where you got this info but it's wrong. Lots of 1030s had 540 from the factory. Around our erea all that I have seen had that. The only ones that had 1000 rpm came from the wheat country in the Dakotas for running combines. As far as the engine problems you mention, I already said that, but they can easily be avoided with just a little common sense.

Can be hard to start. Heads like to crack. Top flange of engine sleeves like to crack. Starting fluid compounds the cracking problems. If the tractor you are looking at has been huffing ether I would be wary. 1030 used the same ring & pinion/differential as the 930 & a lot of 1030's coming in here have problems in those areas.

They were a great tractor for 100 hp. Very fuel eficient, hard pullers. Power steering is a little weak if your using a loader. A little hard to start if its cold. The engines can take a lot. You can pull them hard all day long and not hurt them a bit, but you can crack a head if you don't idle them a bit to cool them after a hard pull. That said we've used 30 series of all sizes since new and never had a problem with any of this stuff. All it takes is a little common sense. Trany, hyd., 3 point, pto all were among the best available at the time.

I have observed on this forum good and bad about all model Cases. I know that most on here have good common sense. I agree when buying these older tractors one must be wary. As been said know where it came from and find out if possible how it was run and maintained. I see this even in new tractors--Some people could destroy the best built one in the world. Ive seen at my dealership old (30 yrs and older ) come in running and looking like new, and I"ve seen two year old tractors look like and run like junk. As to weak points ---all models have them. There is no perfect tractor, some come closer than others.
