Case 530 questions

I just acquired an older Case tractor. I believe it to be a 530 gas model, but it's been painted and is missing the serial number plate. Here's what I know for sure about it so far:

It has the individual gauges and an eagle hitch.
It's a standard clutch model with 2 gear ranges totaling 8 gears.

It's got what I think is the industrial loader on the front.

The steering wheel says power steering, but I can't find any signs of power steering on the tractor. Did they make these in manual steering configuration or am I just missing something really obvious?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

You could add an electronic power steering unit if you don't care about originality. You could get it done for under $200.00 in parts.

It probably originally had the PS cylinder mounted in front of the axle similar as the pic. There would have been a guard to protect the cylinder shaft mounted on the right front of the axle. It would have had a belt driven pump mounted on the top left front of the engine with a small reservoir/filter mounted on the top center of the valve cover.
The rational for removing the PS is the cost and scarcity of the obsolete cylinder that usually if a replacement is found it will require extensive repair. There are Ford tractor model 700 & 900 cylinders that can be found usually in decent shape that are a near drop-in replacement.

As an example the site at the link lists a Ford rebuilt cylinder for sale $1175.

Not a 310 as mine has the battery under the hood.

You are correct. No small battery hood & door.

Intersting, I'll have to go take a look at that again in person. It does look like it's there in the picture though. I can't believe someone would have taken every bit of the power steering components out of this thing. I find it easier to believe that someone added that guard to a tractor that didn't have power steering. There's not even a bracket left from anything on the tractor.
Where does the power steering pump attach on the gasoline engines originally? is it belt driven?

It appears to have item 31 on the parts list and that is a G13944 Guard for the original power steering cylinder that is similar to what was used on some ford tractors and others. A previous owner has made a field modification.

Here is whats behind the grill in front of the radiator. That's the top of the steering box.

Is it possible this isn't a 530 like I though? Since I don't have the serial number, I'm still not 100% sure of the model.

Also, the air cleaner isn't installed right now from us starting the tractor to move it.

Nope, no power steering reservoir. No rams on the front steering either. Nothing that I can see up by the steering wheel either. No hoses up by the steering wheel for sure. On the front of the engine, there is a water pump, generator, and at the very front the hydraulic pump. Nothing else is connected to the front of the engine.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeMost likely your tractor has power steering. You could'nt pay me enough money to steer it with a load in the bucket. There is a hose underneath the front that looks like an oil return. If you open the front grill you will probably find a power steering reservoir that has a dip stick. You will also find your engine air cleaner that probably needs cleaning and new oil. While your at it, take the cleaner unit out ( two bolts and a hose clamp ) and check for things like mud dobber mud nests, etc.

I see 3 possibilities, a late 310B, early 430 or 530. The grill screens look short for a 530 though. Look at the starter flange, a 2 bolt starter flange would make it a 310B, and a 3 bolt flange would rule it out. Your tractor originally had the Instrument Cluster, that's obvious. Someone simply replaced it.

Thanks for the replies. Here are some pictures of the tractor.

I keep seeing they offered different power steering options, but did they have an option without power steering?

530 was built with 3 different types of power steering pending Utility tractor or GP tractor (ag) and s/n. You can view the PS types parts break down at the link to id your PS type.
