I’m looking for a manual for my rd450. I’m replacing the head gasket and need to know torque sequence and settings. It’s a 1950s engine. I’ve been searching online with no luck so far. Please let me know if you know of a source. Thanks mike

Perhaps a local library may have a copy of 1962 Motor's Truck Repair Manual.

 I had a copy at one time, it was lent out to someone  and never came back.

Torque sequence will be start in center and work outward.  This is always the case.  I never even follow specific sequences.  As far as torque, I'm sure someone can get it for you.  We could likely make a pretty educated guess and it would be fine.

I hate it when someone borrows a tool and doesn’t return it.

I have a pretty extensive personal library.  I did not remember having these, but after rereading this I thought I'd go look.... unfortunately they are Auto and not truck.

So I dug some more and found a 73 Chilton manual.  Lucky day! It covers the RD motors. 

Hopefully you can read the text.  Paragraph numbers 16 and 18.
