Block Heater

Mini how to installed block heater for John Deere 2210 CUT (Compact Utility Tractor). Before starting this project please allow the engine to cooled down. Do not remove cap or drain the cooling system if you can not touch the radiator cap with your bare hands and you have read the operator's manual on servicing the cooling system.




Coolant (Block) Heater Part AM882530 & AR87167      Governor Case Cover AM881476

Parts

To intall block heater for John Deere 2210 you will need order three kits (I only used two of the three kits). The AM882530 kit that includes two screws, gasket and the adapter for the heater. The AR87167 kit that has the heater element and power cord. To install the heater you need both the AM882530 and the AR87167 kits. The last kit AM881476 governor case cover, gasket, and three screws. I did not use AM881476 kit for the governor. I had no problems installing block heater with out the AM881476 kit.

NOTE: Most likely you will need to add coolant to the radiator after installing heater. For parts add one gallon of coolant.



Heater and Flange Adapter

Heater and Adapter

Because of limited room on the engine install the heater element into the adapter first. The heater and flange adapter threads are pipe thread (tappered). I used two pipe wrench to install the heater into the flange adapter. I used Permatex thread sealant with Teflon. You don't have to use Permatex. You can use Teflon tape or any other thread sealant.

Engine plug half way out

Knocking Out the Engine Plug

  1. You have completly drained the cooling system. Read the Servicing Cooling System section in the 2210 Operator's Manual for draining the cooling system. (Service Engine - 38)
  2. You have bucket so you can try to catch coolant when you knock the plug out. Good luck! It's not alot of coolant, but be ready for it.
  3. You will need a big regular screw driver. Make sure you do not hit the engine flange surface during the removely of the plug. Place the screw drive on the left or right side of the plug next to the edge. Next hit the screw drive with a hammer. Keep hiting one side (left or right) so the plug looks like the picture. The plug can not fall back into the engine block. It's to small of an area. In the picture you can see engine block wall behind the plug (gray) and coolant at the bottom (green).
  4. Next pull the plug out.
