The drawing is just a general application from the company. The hose by the oil spinner is going to the block like in my picture, I have a port there so I plumbed it in. You need one lower and one higher up basically.

Originally I had one of these kinds on that's thermostatically controlled so it doesn't overheat.  Sounded like a good ideal but for some reason it didn't seem to warm up as fast or work good in real cold weather like -25c.  So installed the model  I have on there now in the post above.  When you plug it in it just stays on.  I've used that style for decades on all my other equipment and it seems to work.  The elements do burn out over time but you can buy them separately and they don't cost much.

Engine Coolant heater installation

Here are some pictures of the circulating coolant heater on my 825. Its a 1500 watt heater  made by Phillips & Temro.  It will get the engine nice and warm in a couple hrs at -10c. (14F).  In extreme cold like -30c (-25F) it will still keep it warm but you have to leave it plugged in longer and make sure its not standing out in a wind.  I've never had an issue starting it in a unheated shed plugged in.  In real cold I make sure I have synthetic oil in too as has an aluminum oil pan on the engine so one of those magnetic pan heaters won't work to keep the oil warm.  I think the coldest weather I've used it in was -40C (-40F). If I lived farther north in constant cold weather  I'd put in synthetic gear oil in the transmission and all the front wheel drive gear boxes.  Also put in synthetic cold weather oil in the hydraulics and power steering as it takes a long time to warm up and move'n when its been sitting at -40 !!   Standard  80w-90 gear oil at -40 .... doesn't move!!
