Welcome to GTtalk. That old green tractor ain't never going to do anything. So just ship it on down to Arkansas and I will give it a good home. Sure looks great and being your grandfather's will mean a lot to you. Looks like it would PULL great with the tractor grip rears. NICE

I think its a 400 based on the PTO lever on the right hand side there,

The 420 and the 430 were electric PTO right?

Yup, the 420 has an electric clutch. You can also tell by the power steering.

Looks like a 400 to me. Look at the fender deck. It has the older style with the rounded rear and the small tail lights. Same style as my 314. That is a really nice tractor! Wheel weights, AGs and a 3pt. hitch. Sweet!

Decoded, :welcome: to GTTalk. Glad you got the assistance you were needing.
Those 400 JDs are supposed to be one well built machine. Oh, and I updated the map, so you should be there now, thanks for participating.

The elephant nose exhaust is a sure sign of a 400, the only John Deere built that way.

I hope you have some attachments with it as well, as these are model specific and a bit hard to come by.

Welcome to the Green Sickness :D

He has the 3 pt. hitch so at least he should be able to get rear attachments without much trouble. Elephant nose ... I love it!!
