mogless, except for my friends MB4-94. And a bunch of other diesel junk.
Hi this is my first post here, though I've asked a few questions on the pirate 4x4 board. I've recently purchased a 71 416, and have been slowly tracking down all of it's problems. I bought it from a guy in Va named Lou Yarbrough, he's got a dozen or so mogs, though none of them have been driven for at least 3 years, and as they say, they were put away wet. Last night at some point, the block heater, an aftermarket zero start, overheated and died. Melted the heater lines right off, and made the truck stink like burnt plastic. I imagine that it's unlikely that it could've started a fire, but am now wary of this tank type of heater and am looking for a alterntive that people have used with good results. Is there any way to adapt the block heater from a w123 car? Thanks, Seth
