On my 3-cyl Ford 4000 AG tractor, I had the same problem. Those two bolts under the bolster can only come out 'RIGHT' with the engine pulled. I took a 4" grinder with a cut-off disk and cut them just below the pan, turned them with a wrench until they were cut into. Slid the pan out, loosened the cut-off bolt with hand or vice grip, and when I put it back together, used short almost stubby bolts with 1/2" shank and no lock washer. Course, I did my job in the field where I had been bush-hogging and damaged the pan. Used a 3K inverter powered of my gator. So my work environment wasn't as good as a shop, so you'd have so many more options in your shop. Wayne

I've never worked on a 4500, but if yours is a 4500 with the hydraulic tank in the nosecone, I would think that you would have to pull off the entire nosecone, hydraulic tank and all before you could pull the radiator. But maybe there's some way to do it without all that.
Please post a picture of your tractor, or the numbers off of the flat spot on the transmission bell housing just aft of the starter, so we know what you've actually got. All you've said is it's a "3 cylinder 4000 Industrial backhoe", which could mean that it's a 4500, the true "Industrial" model of the 4000 series, or a 4400, which was actually called a "Utility" tractor by Ford, but lots of folks refer to them as Industrial, or it could be a plain old ag chassis 4000 that someone stuck a subframe type backhoe onto and then whoever sold it to you called it an "Industrial".
