    Hopefully there's a bypass hose from the head to the water pump.

    Is there an oil cooler? My 843 had coolant lines running through the filter housing.

    No for some reason only on the 751 they used a water cooled motor. Therefore you can't put a heater in it

    look on the water pump for a plug or a nipple. then look on the intake or head for another one.

    I must be missing something......because it is water cooled you can't put a heater in it? I have plumbed in many heaters into skidsteers, and they all were water cooled

    I agree. Isn't water cooled an alias for liquid cooled normal diesel engine? I can understand it wouldn't work if it was an air cooled gas engine.
