If the engine turns rather freely and not hindered by malfunction of pump, then it should start. Since you are going to rebuild pump, you should just remove the pump from the engine now and set it on the work bench to prevent any further damage. It is a good idea to test engine before you spend any money on the pump. Dewalt service center has all the parts lists for your machine, however you should look up the model number of the pump itself (stamped / tagged on body of pump) and look for more information from mfg. web site. Good luci

What must a Tata Telcoline head be Torqued.

When doing major engine work a shop manual is essential, as it is not just the torque value, but sequence that is important. Further, many newer engines use head bolts that must be replaced, and torque values now may include degree angles for final tightening.

Need service information to conduct a thermostat replace ment on a VY series 2 commodore which has the supercharged buick 3.8 engine

Sorry Graham, it is based on a Buick, the big difference is your 3.8 does not have a distributor at all, no where for it to go even, you have to start with your fan belt using a 3/8 drive bar that fits into the flexible belt tensioned, then remove ALL the plastics from the front of your engine, the water pump is under them, not a nice job so I would look at replacing any belts bearings and seals as you go

I need the torque settings for a HD 1450 motor

If you need the torque values for a particular item, I may can provide that but I cannot provide ALL the torque values for the engine as there are quite a lot of them. If you need that level of information, I'd suggest the purchase of a service manual. I understand that coming to this site is to obtain information but I simply do not have all the torque values for these engines. I specialize on the older engines like the Panheads, Shovelheads, Ironhead Sportsters and the Evolution. I do not work on Twin Cam engines but some of the torques values are the same and I can provide those. Other setting, particular those in the cam chest, I do not have. Sorry.

Good Luck
