You do not like the original heater that screws in the bottom rad hose?

No this heater takes forever to heat the engine up.

Yes I find that a lot of heat escapes through the rad.I have thought about doing the same,is there not a plug in the elbow where the top rad hose connects and the ather hose to to engine drain plug.

If you are want fast heat this is the way to go. Inlet on the heater is hooked to bottom of thermostat housing and outlet to the block drain. This reversed from normal installation instructions. This way forces the heat into the block where it's needed. I've had my 2-70 hooked this way for 25 years. (snow blower tractor)

I have heard that the circulating heaters are hard on head gaskets.

I've also heard it said that the heaters can be hard on the sleeve seals. Is there any truth to that?
