Thanks

The 3100087 fits the 300Tdi as well. I have one in mine. Haven't had to use it yet, but it's starting to get pretty cold again.

I installed mine before fitting the engine to the truck. Fairly easy that way but the core plug is somewhat blocked by the turbo, so it could be some fun fitting the heater with the engine in place.

Well I stopped by NAPA on lunch they want $76.00 and a few days to get one. I will shop around and see if I can find it cheaper.
Funny how a house and a wife have made me start shopping around for a better price. Also I have had this truck on the road for a few weeks and no winch or swampers yet old age must be setting in.. hmmmm

This freeze plug heater fits the 300tdi exact!! KAT'S FROST PLUG #11441 I have one installed in mine.

Since the 300tdi block is made by Maxion & Maxion is owned by Ford, the block is really a remake of an old Ford tractor motor. I found this out in a tractor catalog, VALU-BILT tractor Parts.

If you have a carquest parts dealer near you they have a equivalent part that is the same size. I have this in the the first plug hole in my 200tdi.

I bought the Temro/zerostart referenced above from O'Reilys auto parts for around $40. Had it installed when manifold and turbo were replaced, so pretty easy then.

Is there one plug location or another that works better? Looks like there are a couple of different locations to install a plug heater. (300tdi)

Unless they bought them recently, Maxion is owned by Navistar, not Ford.

BUMPING this...

What are the best ways to do a block heater on 300tdi these days?
NAPA?
I couldnt find that Napa part # but it might have changed...

I have the Temro/zerostart 3100087 from O'Reilys ($57) in the forward most freeze plug hole. My first heater began leaking thru it's mount screw within a month and was replaced under warranty.

Is this on the 300tdi?
The freeze plug right behind the alt, right?

Just thinking that would be the easiest to get to once the motor is in a vehicle to R & R; right now its on a pallet so access is a non-issue.

Yes, 300 Tdi. The freeze plug is aft of the alternator and forward of the turbo. I know the optimal position is the plug under the turbo but I didn't feel like removing the exhaust manifold.

Well, I thought the forward freeze plug was better anyway in case of future failure.

Even though....I'm going to be replacing the exhaust manifold gasket.

One more thing- do these freeze plugs knock out from the edge or do you have to punch a hole and pry them out?
