working on cleaning out the shed and getting things put up for the winter. I can't seem to find the block heater on my 1660 I'm relatively sure it has one, some distant memory tells me that I plugged it in last winter. Where would a guy look?

Unless someone installed it afterwards,they didnt come from the factory with a block heater.I worked at a CaseIH dealership from 84-90 and remember unloading new combines in the winter.They never had block heaters,new tractors either.That was the first thing we did when pre deivering a new tractor was install block heater.The combines usually got warmed up with a propane heater if it was too cold to start.

My old 1660 didn't have one on it. It would be middle of the engine block on the left of the oil filters. It wouldn't be on the injector pump side. I always found it odd that in a cold weather place in the midwest that they never shipped them out with them, they had to be ordered for them.

It will be in between the injector pump and the fuel filters, if it has one. If not you can put one in fairly easily if you're flexible there is a freeze plug hole there. As to the other posts referencing it being on the oil filter side there aren't any freeze plug holes on that side of the block the crankcase breather lives in that spot. A bullet heater on the deck blowing on the engine will help in the absence of a block heater.

You're right. I still have my book and looked. I don't know what I was thinking of. Maybe my cummings on the 2166, who knows. Sorry for bad info, disregard my prior post Eric.
