Get a heater from John. I have had problems with a tank heaters more than a few times. When the weather is cold that is a poor time to play in antifreeze. This is advice from a old MoDOT mechainic.

Take it from a Mn. native, get a tank heater. All you have to do is pull the plug in the bottom of the block and there is another in the water manifold.Just make sure that the plug in the water manifold is on the engine side of the thermostat. It will warm the engine much better than block heaters do and be less likely to leak and be easier to replace when the time comes.

I've got 2 400 diesels, a 55 and a 56. Both have block heaters and they work well. Make sure you're burning #1 (it's getting harder to get, everyone uses a blend it seems). I've had no trouble, other than with the operator, in the well below zero range.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
