Most people just tie into the return line on a 200/300. Had a westbasto coolant heater in Td5 110 I used to own.....it was awesome, had a remote and a timer, I could either set the timer or just walk to the kitchen window and point the remote to turn it on.....someone gave me a Espar portable demo unit...DL1...hot air.....mounted in a tackle box. I installed it in my 90. Read everywhere that you couldn't tie into the return line on a Td5, too much pressure, but after calling the guy that has that 110 now, he said the Westasto was tied into the return. So I tied the Espar into the return....and...too much pressure. It started blowing diesel everywhere. So now I have it blocked off until I get around dropping the tank and cutting the nipple and running a dedicated line.

Actually I do speak German. I searched English and German fleabay already. Not many new ones available and the full kits were around $1500. I prefer to get a new unit.

Danke Schön.

I will likely give you a call once I'm ready to install one.

This thread, plus the cold weather, finally made me get the esbar running. As I said in my earlier post, the return line on the Td5 had too much presure, and I was too lazy to drop the tank to install a dedicated fuel line. I already had tapped into the return, so I picked up a tin quart container of mineral spirits, dumped it into the parts washer, then soldered two tubes into it, one at the top and one at the bottom, and mounted it under the bonnet next to the Esbar. I put a valve on the return line and then ran it to the top tube on the new "tank". Hooked the bottom tube to the Esbar. Works like a charm. When I need more fuel in the tank, I cut on the ignition to activate the fuel pump, open the valve, and fill up the tank.
