Engine 30513 can be found by searching online for that part number. Right at the back of the engine, near the firewall, there should be a factory-installed threaded block heater port. This would be on the passenger-side of the engine block, just above the firewall. An industrial plug measuring 27mm in diameter should be installed in the 27mm threaded port at the time of manufacture. I thank Auto Cooling Solutions for being there for me
The size of the freeze plug on the block may be obtained by contacting the dealership. That's how I got it to work on my 3000GT

Although it was a bit of a hassle to install, it still only took a few hours. I had to figure out where to put it on my own without any help from the instructions. This is what I see on As you can see in 2 , the heating element is supposed to be Having hit an engine block at that position, I turned it to around 2 o'clock in order to make it fit. The plug was difficult to seat properly as a result of the engine mount, but I was able to seat it with a bit of leverage provided by a screwdriver. significant amount of power, but gives me peace of mind, knowing that I am not putting a lot of wear on the engine. Timed to turn on three hours before I leave, it turns on three hours before I.
There are no problems with this product. The block sealed up well (in a freshly tanked block) and kept the coolant at an even 80 degrees even after running in the cold There is 20 degree weather today. I am upset because I ripped all the threads out of it before it was even close to being If I had only used my fingers, it would have been easier. walked to the hardware store and got a new bolt and clamp to install and it hasn't caused me any further.
While I was having other work done on my car, the dealership was able to insert the block heater while the coolant was being It was found that the center bolt of the block heater was not sealed. It is faster and cheaper for me to allow them to get a different unit
I don't expect to be able to return or get a refund for the 11603 I ordered from Amazon. It seems like they threw it away. The $15 I lost is not a loss, but not something to be concerned about. I have had great results with Kat's products in the past. Whatever the case, it's just a case of luck of the draw. The heater arrived well packed and it looked brand new. Thank you. It was a pleasure dealing with a seller who offered great products. I'll continue to use Kat's products.
It didn't work and was never sealed, so it couldn't be used. I would not purchase this item.
With the cold-start feature, the engine remains in good condition for a long time You can do the work yourself in about an hour, but you might want to consult a mechanic if you are uncertain. I love electronic), it's great!.
I purchased this for it. The V8 is divided into two. Worked great for me. it set to turn on at 3 am, and the temperature gauge shows that it is around 110° when I turn it on. It is important to be sure to use a torque wrench with an inch-pound rating so that you don't Due to the fact that the plug did not come with a cover, I purchased.
The V8 is 9 inches.
For those cold / damp mornings, I put it in my old farm truck. It is very simple to install The radiator needed to be refilled, which added about 7 minutes. I find it to be very useful.
