Block heater for MF 35

I own a 1964 MF35 with Perkins Diesel. Maybe the best tractor ever built! However the engine is getting tired, still good power and using little oil, but becoming hard to start if temperature is lower than 40F, if it was not used the previous day. The manifold heater works so that is not the problem. I know that I should have engine rebuilt but I am in my late 70s and know that I will not be able to farm for all that much longer.

First question, where can a block heater be installed (I have never seen one here in usually warm Australia).

Second, where can a block heater be purchased from the UK as we have same 220-240V power as UK.

Well, the AD3-152 Perkins takes a 1.25" block heater to fit in the block, which may help your search for a 240 Volt version.

If you can use an external "circulating heater", even here in the States there's a number of sources for those in 240 Volts.

Hello, block heaters are virtually unheard of in the UK. It wasn't really something that I had heard of until it was mentioned on YT.
A filter service or re-con injectors might help.

I service the filters regularly. I had not thought of injectors, and will look into that. Interesting that block heaters are not used in UK.

Thanks again for your great comments on all things MF
