I got some helpful advice about coolant heaters a couple of weeks ago either here or on the Farmall forum. I got a lower radiator hose heater for my 300 and today I used it for the first time. It was 16 F and the tractor started on the first spin and ran smoothly. I am very happy with it. I filed my taxes this afternoon, which was not nearly as satisfactory but at least now it is done.

Thanks for the tip. I'll check into that. I was slightly cringing at the cost of custom cables, along with two new batteries.

Filed taxes already???

The block heaters do wonders for starting a diesel engine and make for a quick warm up on the gas engines. I use to have one in my 1981 Chevy. Putting a trickler charger on the battery(s) helps a bunch too when use with a block heater.

In order to file taxes you need to have W2's, 1099's etc. I don't know of anyone who has them. I usually am not able to complete my taxes until the 1st of February when I have all the forms.

Doesn't that work great! It has to be so much less wear and tear on the whole system. I really baby our JD 4600, anytime its below about 20F I plug it in, never have really heard the engine crank over, it starts immediately!

Nice to hear. I've got one for my 560, but haven't put it in yet. I'm planning on getting some soldered battery cables (parallel 12's) this spring. Hoping that it'll make for easier starts.

Putting 2 twelve volt batteries in Parallel works much better than two six volt batteries in series. I've switched many of machines over to parallel batteries from a series hook up.

They start much better every time.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Years ago I started using the pre made cables you can get through auto parts stores, the thickest ones they sell.

A cable from each positive to the starter and a cable from each negative to the block near the starter for my application.

Very economical and you have the capacity to carry more amps than a single lead.
