I forgot how long it's been, but the previous owner started to dismantle to restore, then got discouraged, so I bought it, in pieces. She's completely restored. The front axle tube was destroyed, so a local welding shop built me a new tube & welded all the attaching parts from the old tube to it. When I slid it up underneath, the pins fell into place.
I completely re-built the engine. When I inspected the Triple Range unit, it was actually all brand new. The hydraulic pump appeared to be new. However, all the gears in the 4-speed gearbox were chewed to pointy tips, so they were all replaced. New seals & bearings for the PTO shaft. New seals for the P/S cyl's & the rockshaft cyl. I debated about new rear skins, but found a star break on the left rear, so when the weather warms, she'll get new sneekers on the back. Serial tag gone, but with it having Draft-O-Matic, Hydro-Static Steering, Triple Range & Hand Clutch, she must be a '65 or 66.
Thanks to Jon Axthelm, Mrs. Davis, Elmers, Fred Goodrich, Don L. & Bill Wallace, who all supplied me pieces & parts as I needed them.
She got her iniation this morning running auger to load beans. She's a keeper!!

John all I can say you done so well, what a charm, they just don't make them like that anymore. I hope someday I can find one, or maybe get my "310" running.

Thanks John for letting us see.

Well Done John. She's beautiful!!

Yours is the exact vintage as a 1966 model that dad had when I was at home in the late 1960s and 1970s. The triple range, a horizontal hand clutch arm, draft-o-matic, and hydrostatic power steering make it the best of the breed in my opinion. Dad's was a diesel, but that appears to be the only difference.

I like the idea of setting the fenders up slightly higher with the spacer.

Thanks for sharing John. She brought back lots of memories.

John, that's awful nice!
Got to be the tail end of the triple range with that low down hand clutch.
If you ever come up with a source for the plug that goes in the hole up front under the grill screens, I could use 2 or 3 myself. Those 430s are the nicest all around utility tractor Case ever made. Easy to get on and off. Easy to handle. Easy on the eyes! LOL

Hayrack where are you located? I have one in Oregon with a factory loader. It is partially disassembled but has new pistons, sleeves and bearings. All there but the grille screens. 1966 vintage. Email is open. Zane

Thanks men. 205-69 is the part # for that cap, but CASE doesn't see any need to supply it anymore. I can't find it in the hardware stores either. A customer told me the moulding strip around the instrument panel was available from Deere. Part # AM119796, $18.00 for 60" strip. Worked good. Chris clocked me speeding down the road in 4th Hi, 30MPH. We've got several Triple Range tractors around here, but none as fast as this 430.

Runnings Farm Store sells those stainless heated pet bowls. They have a moulding around the bottom of the bowl that looked to me like the same stuff Case used on the 430 dash. I always thought a little detective work and a few phone calls, a guy could find the supplier and buy a whole giant roll of the stuff for cheap direct from the manufacturer. Just a thought for someone more ambitious than I. LOL

30 mph means I can have it in my garage tonight before you are able to get dressed and out the driveway! But the way its snowing now I might wait til a warmer night.
