I have a 930, this is not a 930! What is it though? 730?

Well, the tag says G 1 5 9 B. Does that make it an industrial?

No. That is the engine tag, which indicates it's the later 159 CI spark ignition engine with the horizontally mounted oil filter, crankcase breather tube, and dipstick tube that doubles as the oil fill location.

The previous version had a filter mount that was on the side of the block slightly ahead and lower than the distributor. The filter was mounted vertically (unless a power steering pump/reservoir was mounted below the generator, and then the filter was mounted on an angle down and aft). It also has a crankcase breather cap on top of the valve cover that protruded above the hood, and doubled as the oil fill location.

There may have been some other changes but those were the obvious ones....

If this tag is correct for this tractor it may be the tractor model nr with a 7 digit serial nr go to the link and you may find the serial nr model year under 530.

I don't know if that will work for 541 but Joe Y likely will know.

Joe has a great point. It appears Fred Sanford (previous owner) strategically preserved the serial number plate on this beauty by bolting a bottle rocket launcher on the right side panel. It's a little concerning that the launcher is pointed aft......
Below is a complete list of serial number breaks for the post Rock Island 30 series tractors (1960-1961 430-530-630 were made in Rock Island and had serial numbers beginning with a "6". Production of these models was moved to Racine in 1962, and they were assigned serial numbers beginning with an 8 just like the bigger tractors). The list Joe reference was for the 530CK which was discontinued for the 580 in 1966/67.

Based on the rocket launcher, fenders and other slabs of steel bolted on, I'm wondering if this poor little 530 did a tour of service in eastern europe....

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
