I have just acquired a JD 4045TF270 out of Genie Telehandler. Love the numbers and would like to make them larger. The Bell Housing is a #4. I lucked out with it being out of a Pole crushed equipment with the engine intacted from Radiator to Flywheel and only had 1192 hours on it with no play in the turbo shaft. I am putting it in my Jeep Wrangler.
Still not sure of the Trans and Xcase combo

Thanks for replying. I'm glad I'm not the only one interested in a John Deere swap. I too have a 5030 engine; model # 5030TT002. It came out of a CT332 track loader. Do you have your engine yet? Are you going to try to modify/increase hp?
What type of flywheel/ bellhousing is on the back of that engine- ie is it a SAE #4 or somethin different- have to say the numbers for this engine look pretty sweet and the dimensions are nice too, plus the fact that its 5 cylinder might make things a little smoother.

thanks

Kyle

Hello, I'm new here. I completed a 4045t swap in my F250. I love it , haven't got the mileage where I want it . I was getting 24 mpg in town but had to swap the IP cause it was scored and lost pressure after it warmed up. Only getting 21mpg in town now. need to verify timing is dead on then have pump adjusted for economy not power.

Here's a photo of the IP on my 4045T (4045TF150A) You can see the timing mark on the mounting flange.
There is also an adjustment which is centered inside where the injection lines come out. Has a knurled edge and a
small stop nut up against it. Function? I don't have a book on this pump yet. I'd like to know what adjustments are possible, and what
problems (if any) I might anticipate. Also interested in any information about the pencil injectors.

I am in the parts collecting stage of my swap into a 1983 Chev 3/4T 4x4 which
had a 6.2 in it. JD8020 has been a great help to me in sorting out some swap details. 4045 IP Stanadyne.jpg

4045 into CUCV

I have also long contemplated a 4045 swap instead of a 4BT. It seemed to me like they were the same engine, as I also have a 5.9 Deere motor, which I always assumed was a Cummins - even sounds the same. But apparently it's just ironic.

Regardless, the 4045 is readily available in my area for much cheaper than a 4BT, making it worth the extra effort to use it instead. I'm going to be re-powering my 1986 K30 4x4 CUCV with a 4BT or maybe a 4045 JD. I'm curious as to:

-What mileage people have gotten with the 4045

-What tranny did you use? (I'm using TH400)

-Axle gearing AND tire size

-Dyno numbers?

-Youtube links?

Well after Not seeing any pictures of videos I bought a surplus generator about six months ago that has a JD 3.9T engine in it with under 100 hours on the engine! I hoping to find a 50's or 60's half ton pickup to do the conversion in!
Right now its Winter and the generator is buried under 6 inches of snow!
Waiting for Spring!

I'm in process to swap a John Deere engine 4039T in my Dodge Ram 1500 2004 4x4. I custom made a adapter plate between bellhousing and 47RH transmission.

I made a little video:
