Block heater added to X595

According to JD parts this set up is only on the 430, 445 & 2002-2004 X495 & X595. Should be called head heater because it mounted in the head, anyway, removed air cleaner housing, cleaned paint off of head & new adapter, drained coolant, removed freeze-out plug, the head kept dripping anti-freeze so I jacked up front of X595. the freeze-out plug hole is not in the center of the bolts holes, so the top of the gasket has a curve to go around opening. did a pressure test before test drive. so far so good. the heater takes a 1 3/8" socket

Re: Block heater added to X595

Maybe I'm not seeing it correctly but wouldn't there be a air pocket the way that adapter is pointed up? Ia there a bleeder screw on the adapter? I'd think a air pocket would burn out the heating element right away!

Re: Block heater added to X595

Yeah, you might want to flip it upside down...

Course, I would just fab up a plate from 1/4" steel & thread it for the block heater.... Or use slightly thicker steel, make a smooth hole and use a car block heater.

I did everything A good JD owner should do, went to the JDparts site & ordered according to my serial number, I see your point that it could trap air, I'm 99% sure I don't have room to turn it over because of air cleaner assembly, so it's coming off. in most pictures my air cleaner is removed for I can work. Maybe Dave R will make me a plate to remount it?

Re: Block heater added to X595

I wasn't saying you did anything wrong at all. Just looks like a dumb design in my opinion. Also looks like your air filter is completely different than mine, I have air filter to the side and fuel filter right in front of the head. This picture is with with the hood up and camera in front of the machine facing the rear.

Re: Block heater added to X595

Heater is gone, new freeze out plug is now installed & area repainted with high heat paint & pressure tested. I bought the newer style block heater which really goes into the block, not the head. The old heater will fit unside down to avoid air pockets, however, then I would be concerned about deposits collecting around heater. although I'm sure that any anti freeze system of mine is always pure deposit free anti-freeze.

Re: Block heater added to X595

So you found a heater that goes in one the freeze plugs on the block and dont that goofy adapter? I'm guessing it's not from john deere and is aftermarket?
