I just had one of those freeze plug heaters burn up in the Versatile night before last. Don't even want to think about replacing it. Stupid Cummins engineers put it behind a big tube on the side of the engine.

Must be related to the engineers that put the one in the 466 inter motor in a 5088, I changed the other day for a customer, in 40oc below with wind chill and not wearing gloves half the time!. I needed a 1/4" more to get the heater out as it hit the starter, had to half remove the starter to get the space. The guy that designed that never talked to the guy that made the bolts to hold the starter,or the guy that designed the tractor frame rails, Had to use a 3/8 drive 12 point socket to fit the bolt heads as the 1/2" socket would not fit in the lug gap. Then had to use 18"+ of 1/2 drive extensions and a universal joint/ adapted down to 3/8 and a 3 ft knuckle bar to get enough torque to slacken the bolts then had to loosen them the rest of the way with my fingers. good luck with yours
Regards Robert
