Anyone have some 2000 specs they wouldn"t mind sharing?

A friend is rebuilding a 3-cyl 2000 and could use some info on torque specs and piston orientation (notch on pistons goes toward front or rear?)

Yep, I know (and HE knows) he needs a manual but, aside from that, if anyone would be kind enough to post torque info (head bolts, mains, etc.), it"d be appreciated. Specifically:

  1. Connecting rod nuts
  2. Head bolts
  3. Main bearing cap bolts
  4. Oil pump to block

.. Plus any others you wouldn"t mind sharing.

I checked the Vintage tractor resource and it looks like it"s pre 3-cyl. so no luck there.

I"ll apologize in advance for imposing on your time. He"s had time to get this kind of homework done while waiting on the dang parts, but .. he didn"t, and now needs a favor. Guess most of us drop the ball on being organized once in awhile so, to any who might be able to help, thanks in advance.

First off, you really do need a manual. I don't see how you can do it without, too many numbers, ring gaps, manifold torques, color finish and orientation of the piston rings, diesel or gas? etc...

Well, I cannot show you the cylinder head tighening sequence, but its a basic start at the middle, back and forth across the engine, and work toward the ends. Start on the exhaust side in the middle.

Cylinder head torque is three step, 80/90/100 ft/lb.

Rod nuts, 60-65 ft/lbs

Main bearing caps, 115-125 ft/lbs

Oil pump, 23-28 ft/lbs.

Piston notch goes to front and rod and cap numbers go to the right.

If your friend wants a quality job, order a manual and wait on it.

Thanks, Charles. Hopefully, your info will be just what he needs. I agree completely about the manual. I know I sure wouldn't attempt a rebuilt without one. The rest of the story, though: My friend is a professional wrench with 35 or so yrs of experience. Lots of rebuilds .. just never a 3-cyl gas. Guess he has the confidence borne of experience, & just needed the details. We'll find out, won't we?

Thx again ..

Today's Featured Article - Timing Your Magneto Ignition Tractor - by Chris Pratt. If you have done major engine work or restored your tractor, chances are you removed the magneto and spark plug wires and eventually reached the point where you had to put it all back together and make it run. On our first cosmetic restoration, not having a manual, we carefully marked the wires, taped the magneto in the position it came off, and were careful not to turn the engine over while we had these components off. We thought we could get by with this since the engine ran perfectly and would not need any internal work. After the cleanup and painting was done, we began reassembly and finally came to t ...
