 Jinma block heater ...... ?

OK all one more silly question, has anyone found any person or Co. who offers a frost plug block heater for any of the Jinma models 2 or 3 cyl ?
I think this is one item that somebody in the field needs to have produced and being it would fit all the diff names the Jinma is offered in it would prolly be worth producing.
Any info on this subject would be appriciated or any other thoughts on keeping them warm in the winter.

Terry

I've always kept away from frost plug heaters because of the potential for leakage/coolant loss. Unless they actually turn into a threaded hole in the block designed specifically for threaded plug-type heaters.

On a diesel, having warm water is ok. But I prefer to have thin oil in an otherwise cold engine. It gets to the upper cylinders all that much faster. I've got a 250W Wolverine heater epoxied to the underside of my oil pan. It's got an internal thermocouple that keeps the oil at a constant 125F. It worked so good on my YM240 last winter, I never even had to use the ThermoStart once. Can't see how it would be any less effective on a Jinma.

Hey Chief,this chinese tractor board on tractor point is working out good huh? We probably already have the alltime record for deletions,and we are just a month or so old! As far as heaters go,I bought one of those little magnetic type and after its been on the oil pan for about two hrs,the only thing that is warm is the heater,it might help a little,not much,those ones that you glue,or otherwise stick to the bottom of oil pan and leave on might be the thing?,if you didn't foul it up running it around in the weeds and mud. I think that idea that Dennis just got about putting deleted posts on a seperate place for awhile for all to read is a good thing,some stuff a couple guys said in response to your post were pretty damned nasty,[I can bring it out in um can't I?], the one guy was in on the last cluster,figures,hes from w.va.,like me. Be nice to see that stuff out where all could read and judge. Richard

My frost plug heater isn't threaded. It's been there since the mid-80's and hasn't leaked but that doesn't mean they never do--it's an issue. I'm sort of agreeing here and my dealer did say that heaters are good but good oil is better for both engine and TX.

I used 0W-30 until this year when I tried 5W-30. I only change oil once a year and using 5W-30 means is better during the summer. A synthetic would even be better in the cold, so I don't use oil pan heaters. I do use magnetic heaters on the TX when it's very cold. I use multi-season TX oil. Using 30W year around, I still have to avoid heavy work on hot days.

I end up doing both winter oil and coolant heating. I think that warm cylinder walls help starting and oil heating doesn't warm the upper engine much. I know when I use the block heater the diesel knock at start up almost disappears.

 Jinma block heater ...... ?

I have one of those cannister type heaters(that a friend gave me) on mine and it works better than I expected. I plan to add a oil pan heater to warm the oil for severe cold temps that we get in upstate NY. I feel its the best of both worlds to have a warm block and oil together. You might say that doing so uses too much electricity but the last thing I need is to be jump starting my machinery in sub zero temps when I need it the most. It also saves wear and tear on engine, starter. If you have a heated area to store it then its a no brainer but when you don't you have to deal with it. I do feel that the block plug design heater would be more efficient. Just my opine, Harry G

 Jinma block heater ...... ?

Hi All:

Well thanks everyone for your help, I would like to see someone like a Jinma dealer figure out if a frost plug heater was available or what size is needed , who knows maybe there is one out there from NAPA etc that will fit , Im not much of a fan for the inline ones , would be nice to find one that can be installed in a plug.
Well maybe spring will come soon and we can forget it till next winter Laughing out loud !
Thanks John for your link ........

Terry

There's a good chance that an automotive one of the right diameter can be found. Some auto types are too long and the element would contact the water jacket, so that's something to check if generic block heaters are considered.
