Immersion Heater for the M180/M130 Mercedes Engines
The photo above shows the pieces included in the kit. You get:
New heating element, 120VAC
custom engine block expansion plate
new MB gasket
Cord plug protector
This heater bolts to the side of your engine in place of the rear expansion plate behind the starter. It is necessary to drain the coolant, but the starter can be left in place. Happy customers report installation times of about two to three hours.
These 600W heaters will give you about 80 of temperature rise if the heater is plugged in overnight. Yup, that means an 80°F engine on a 0°F morning!
If you have winter starting blues, or just hate to start a really cold engine, email me for more info on ordering one. I make them as customers call for them, so I don't have any inventory. However, I can fabricate one in the time it takes a check or money order to get here, and I return them to you with Priority Mail shipping included to anywhere in the continental United States.
