I am Looking for torque specs 1963 John Deere 4010 oil plug and filter housing

I am terrible about tightening things by feel. In my younger day I would break off 3/8 bolts without ever noticing they got tight.

I have absolutely no feel for to tight, just right or loose.

I thought I posted this last night, but can not find my post.

Thanks for any links or info.

We've been through the book and searched online, but have found no results

I also see no specs on torque in operators manual or technical manual. THe oil filter cover is held on with 4- 3/8" NUTS. Typical torque for 3/8" hardware is 35 ft/lbs. Since cover is aluminum, I would say 30 ft/lbs is sufficient. The drain plug is large enough to withstand substantial torque, but the sealing washer is aluminum and will just squash down to nothing if excess torque is applied. I have never used a torque wrench on one, but I would say 50 - 60 ft/lbs would be plenty.

Thank you much.

There is a youtube video on a 4020 about changing a hydraulic screen. I was told the 4010 has the same screen.

I haven't found anything about that in the book yet. The screen is behind the square plug behind the hydraulic filter.

Where does filter part # R27173 go?

It was the 2004 4010 that I checked out my oil extractor on. The oil extractor removed ALL the oil. Nothing came out of the drain plug. So, after that, I didn't have to worry about tightening specs on the drain plug. Don't recall what they were. Used the oil extractor for the 50 hour service on the 2025R.

For the oil filter, you can follow the bit about using a filter wrench. Just hand tighten until you feel the gasket make firm contact. Then tighten with the wrench another 3/4 turn (think that's it, not 1/2 turn). Myself, I generally just tighten as tight as I can by hand. In your case, it sounds as though that could be too tight.

I didn't realize that JD made the 4010 diesel way back in 1963. Thought the old ones were all gas.

R27173 filter goes in frt hyd pump but I've rarely seen one that required replacing.
