It's a older '78 2WD extendable backhoe. Nice old machine. 4 cyl diesel, shuttle shift, 1 yd bucket etc..

Fell victim to electrolysis in the liners, engine took on some coolant but was shut down quickly upon loss of coolant.

We are re-assembling with new liners, rod bearings, rings, lifters and associated seals/gaskets,

So... need pointed to an online source for torque values, valve adjustment sequence things of this nature, or , if anybody has a book or personal experience.. Any and all info would be appreciated!

Today the bottom end went together. Torqued the rods to 60lb.ft. Liners and orings went in smoothly. New tappets were a lube and drop in deal. Need to be sure of the torque and sequence before we button up the head, top end.

Excellent. Do appreciate it sir. Couple questions..

Did your manual make any mention of retorque?
Any mention of '300 series'? There are 400 series diesels but I'm not sure which one would be in your 450.. Don't wanna get crossed up on torque numbers.

Need the next page for running the valves if you could.. Looks like the next page after the one pictured in post 11.

The lash settings I found were .014int & .018ex. Getting close to lighting a fire in the ol beast.

Sweet! Thanks for helping a brother out.

We have a JD parts manual (buncha numbers) for these if you ever need anything, just look me up.

Never got around to looking up a shop manual.. (obviously :eek:)

The JD410 rides again. (digs again) whirled over and hit off on all 4, purged the air bubble from the fuel and stalled, cranked a few more revs and took right off. Did a video but haven't uploaded it.

Next on the list is a good cooling system flush/rad cleaning.
