If the engine is overheating temperature wise that's one thing but if its blowing out the reservoir and your saying its overheating that's another thing. Please let me know which one applies.

How do I change the fuel filter on my 3020 John Deere diesel tractor

Leaving the fuel valve on the tank in the on position will allow fuel to run through the line & keep the air purged during removal. On the other side between the pump & the filter, having the new filter topped off & speedily installed will lessen the chance of air entering the line. Once the filter is installed, open the bleed screw at the top of the filter. Just my redneck way.

322 John Deere Overheating. New rad, hose, rad cap. No noise or leaking from water pump, however I may have put full strength coolant in it. Thank you

one thing that you did not list in your list of replacements that could be the cause of your over heat problem is the thermostat.
relace the thermostat.
now as far as the full strength antifreeze goes, it all depends on what part of the world you live in ( hot or cold ). since you will need to drain part of the antifreeze to replace the thermostat - when you go to refill the radiator use a 50/50 mix and you should be pretty close to the correct ratio.

John Deere 1520 bought used over heated wheN I

The thermostat is there to help cool the engine by slowing the flow enough to let the radiator cool the fluid. I would install a new one, but flush the engine and radiator first. Also are you losing any coolant? Could be a head gasket.

What is the correct method to install water pump

Hello. Make sure the metal surfaces are all perfectly clean and sanded smooth with emery cloth. make sure the gaskets fit well. if not trim them. Finally if all else fails use some gasket cement to insure a leak proof water pump. This gasket cement is a common item available at most hardware and auto parts stores. Joe
