Well I'm not real manly like most of you guys and I like it nice and toasty during snow removal but I need to figure out the plumbing for my heater.I think I need to tee off the lower hose and plumb off one of the plugs on the water pump but not sure which one.Anyone have any ideas?

What's this on?  Two ports in pump, look like in diff flow paths maybe?  Might be out and in right there. Is there a plug in block for draining that might work for a return?  Looks kinda tight in there for much additions of any kind. Is there heater option for orig cab that might be in a manual to see what was done??

This as a CM224 Ford mower.I think I am going to connect a hose to both ports and see if it gets hot.Sounds a little too easy for me.

That problem is solved.I never would have guessed those side by side ports would have worked.

 

Does this mean I have to compliment you,Grumpy?

Didn't make sense to have TWO if in same cavity, so figured must be on two directions flow.  Just thinkin!  Glad it works easy. You gonna use old heater from a car or one of those square fits all Hot Rod boxes or just what?  Would think you would need defroster on window too, or it will be fogging up in no time with heat in just cab part.

Look for a port before and one after The water pump. Use those two and you will be toasty. You will need it. Supposed to be in the single digits in the morning again.

Cripes! Just looked at the thermometer its already 6*F... Maybe burn a vacation day tomorrow and stay toasty at home!

These are my 2 options.I was hoping to partially use the headliner with adjustable venturis  from a John Deere cab but I don't have enough head room without raising my cab.

No chance of being toasty as I have the cart before the horse.My cab is not done yet.I'm still at 14*.

I never though much of a cab on a small tractor but never had one.  If I can keep my hands warm I am warm.  Pushed and blew a lot of snow with Gt's and got along just fine.  Cotton long johns, flannel lined jeans and insulated bibs with heavy lined coat with a hood and good to go.  Have used a weather break on my big tractor a couple years and work good but that was just enclosed on the sides and used the engine heat.  You may have to cover part of the radiator now to keep the engine temp up as you will add a lot more cooling capacity.

Gee, and I was going to suggest re-routing your exhaust into the cab.  I supposed you would be fuming over that!

The temp gauge was part way up when I ran it the other day at 12* but likely I will need to cover the radiator for good heat.
