I think I’m going to attempt to make those plates myself rather than spend that amount of cash.If I can get it made correctly I can mail you the template.
That would be awesome. I’m dropping a couple grand in this engine rebuild so I will likely attempt a serpentine conversion late this year.I think I’m going to attempt to make those plates myself rather than spend that amount of cash.If I can get it made correctly I can mail you the template.
No problem👍As soon as everything arrives back from the shop I can simply lay the heads on the block and then I can begin figuring out the measurements.As soon as I figure things out I’ll get your mailing address and will send the drawings of the plates on paper or on some of that construction paper.That would be awesome.

I didn’t see anymore of them but I’ll keep an eye outNice heater👍I can remember buying the very same one many years ago to put on my fathers landini tractor.Did you come across any more of those heaters by any chance?I don’t intend to use this truck during the winter months anyway when it is back together but it would be nice to add the heater as a nice addition.
I just found one on eBay from Australia going for $300 shipped to my area.Not exactly cheap but great for someone in cold climates that desperately needs it.
The block heaters certainly make a huge difference in frigid conditions.I didn’t have one in place back in 06 when I rebuilt this engine back then but there is nothing like doing things the proper way and have one of these installed.Looks like a nice unit. I got mine from O’Reilly’s and it has been great. Looks pretty similar to yours.
No problem.On another note I plan to buy the flowtech 11150FLT headers but I’m waiting to hear back whether the guy who recommended these to me had any starter interference or not.If he says no problems occurred I’ll let you know.Excellent I will add them to the overhaul parts list.
