Where does one place an engine block heater at?

Thank you all for the replies and amazing advice. Temps here have hit -22+ last couple weeks and truck did start just had to let her run for a while. However now I'm fairly sure I got a blown gasket this morning. From what I could see is that is towards the rear of the block. Unknown if it is cracked but I am now working on figuring all that out. Then prolly putting in that warmer coil. Happy new year!
Good luck and wish you the best it is not the block and hope its a freeze plug. If its a freeze plug. Maybe it has rusted a hole in it. Easier to change a freeze plug . Then a head gasket or motor anyday.

Crish, does the dipstick type heater work good?
"chrls"(ful) that's 2 "L"s and Chad is the actual name.

Sure it wrks. Any heat applyed long enuff wrks (over nite is fine) or of high enuff temp. But this is pretty low, can hold in hand w/o complaint. We just don't get low temps we usta (60s/'70s) as the earth changes are here (I noticed begining w/about Y2K - 20 yrs worsening & worsening). Not very necessary here in WesssMasss any more. Might sell the sno plow too. Usta B "white gold".
