 My head gasket is leaking oil when first started and so I am in the process of re-torqueing the booger ,as the bolts are not as tight as they are supposed to be {32 ftlbs) But I cant find the order in which to tighten them ? Anyone have this info ? Its a D 600.

That's the ticket !!! Thanks Chris and all for these manuals that one is awesome.
Looks like I will need to pull the head at some point and replace the gasket . The head bolts were up to factory torque specs.

It is easy enough to pull the head , its getting the parts that worries me????
I went to the local Kubota dealer last weekend looking for an oil filter.... Dahhhh what's a d600? What tractor is it in..... I say Walker, and he has no clue , and hands me a card with a 1800 # to contact Kubota....... Yeah OK... well your done ....
Any and all good dealers in this area are long gone ..... what a shame ... I'll have to find part numbers and get them from the INTERNET.

Support you local dealer.... yes I would... if he served rum at the parts counter....

Well head gasket was replaced, not bad for it either, $23 . Job was easy Peasy!! And went quite well except for the restart after all was said and done...... that little booger gave me the worst time! And I really don't know why? I had the same issue when I was first trying to fire it up after install years ago ??? Just don't run it out of fuel I guess ?

Well anyways, as suspected..... the head had been changed.... and they forgot to install the o-ring at the oil restrictor for the valve train. This was the leaks cause, kind of a silly design if you ask me, why they didn't make the gasket with a sealing ring at this point is a wonder? But it was easy to fix , and if they had read the service manual..... they would have seen it.
At least I know its all good inside :)

Glad  you got it all fixed up, Keith. Bet they were wondering what that o-ring was for!

That's rather dumb! You would think it would! But I'm glad it was a simple fix for the leak. So it takes a bit to get the fuel flowing right once you open the system?  It's been many years since I had a diesel around.
