you may have to adapt from some thing else some Japanese fire truck engines had a unit in the bottom hose that plugged to power and heated water failing that some Perkins Nissans used a air intake heater

Hey Dillzilla, I've got a heater that sticks with a magnet to the oil pan on my Ram, Unfortunately it's been on there for years, no earthly where I got it, but most likely a local auto parts store. It's 120V just like a block heater, works fine. I just crawled under to try and get a name and number but nothing visible.

Maybe do an internet search for 'Magnetic oil pan heater' or similar? I dimly recall it was only like $29.95 or so, but around 9 years ago.

Hey,
I have a 4d31 mitsu engine, looking to drop it into my 63 Willys truck. Having issues finding an adapter to hook up a tranny.
I think the 4d34 is a similar newer version of the 4d31, any ideas? Or parts sources? I don't care what tranny I use at this point. I prefer a manual but anything will do. Not adapting to the Willys stuff, going 2wd also. I'm wide open to ideas! Thanks
