I need to install a block heater for my 2320. I have purchased it but am not sure where or which frost plug to install it in. Is there a location where I can view an on line manual. thanks

Hi Beckie, Welcome...
What part of Alberta are you from? The reason I ask is that most tractors come equipped with block heaters up here as standard equipment just like our vehicles. At least any of the dealers up in Northern Aberta that I have associated with, if not, YaYa has your answer.
Good luck,
Jake

Thanks for the help, I am from the Calgary area. I assumed when I bought the tractor that it would have a block heater, but that is optional and the dealer hadn't installed one.

Hi

Welcome to MTF. I hope you enjoy your 2320. I like mine but I don't really need a block heater here on the East coast.

Cheers
Brian

The dealer put an inline heater in our 2320 instead of the block type. Works great at -30. If you want a pic let me know..

Thanks for the information. The JD dealer here sold me an aftermarket element, without the adapter kit. The element instructions say that it should go in the front left port instead of the back right one shown in the JD schematic. I don't know if there are threads there behind the plug. I may have to go to the dealer and get it sorted out. Saskman I wouldn't mind seeing your inline set up. It sounds like a good idea.

I just got my 2320 from the dealership a couple of days ago so I have still not even looked at some of the "stuff" I had done to it. One of the things they did was install a block heater for me. It's supposed to be the "stock" JD block heater for this tractor (it better be for what they charged me). I can take some pictures of it if that would be any help.

Hey 1972

Welcome to MTF and congrats on the new tractor. For what it is worth the Yanmar seems to start no problem here on the East Coast without a block heater. When I asked my dealer about it he said they rarely install them here. The 2320 continues to be a popular model according to my dealer.

Cheers
Brian

It depends, the 2520 does not have glow plugs and can be a bear to start here on the east coast when it's cold, the 2305 never once gave me an issue. The service guys at the dealership do not care for the manifold heater setup on the 2520, I sure wish I could change it as I don't care for it either.

Anyhow I put an inline heater in mine same set up as my VW's.
