Heating Pad for my L.

I'll have to admit,I really can't stand winter time.

The only fun I'm gonna have is using my two Gravely's to remove the snow from my 4-car driveway and short city sidewalk. Overkill....I know. My neighbors just shovel or have an old,junk bottom-of-the-line snowblower that is useless.

Not me! I've got the 10A (see avatar)that is a beast and an old cast-iron carb'ed L of unknown year that will be pushing a plow that I restored.

The only problem with the L is the thought of pulling over that ice-cold engine.

I know with airplanes,there are sticky metal pads that owners stick to their oil pans,then plug in to 110V.

*** Q: Have any of you installed engine block heaters on these machines? Before I start looking,I'll bet some of you have excellent ideas.

Attached is a pic of the plow I restored. It now has a 3/8 edge. This plow was found sunk in the ground,rusted,covered with moss. Now it's almost a shame to use it:

Can't say I've ever used a block heater on an L, but I would highly recommend one of these heaters to mount on one (especially if it's going to be a regular snow machine).
They are Wolverine Heaters, work excellent and won't burn the oil like the magnet ones. You can also leave them plugged in.

We had one of these heaters mounted on a 2 cylinder 33hp diesel tractor that had NO glow plugs. Kept it plugged in all winter and it would always fire right up no problem. Was well worth it...... :fing32:
