I've got a D2 5u that came from north of Winnipeg and has a heater installed between the water pump and a pony head. Baby Huey lives in Houston, TX and I don't anticipate the need for a heater (temps have been running in the 70s and lower 80s this mid December week). When we do get a cold snap and the temps drop into the 40s, I probably won't abuse myself to such extreme temperature and therefore won't require my D2 to do the same. I sure wouldn't ask my tractor to do anything I wouldn't do.
Anyway, the tap coming out of the water pump looks about 3/4" but the fitting coming out of the head looks like its not threaded. I'd like to plug both ends and loose the hose connecting the head with the water pump.
Is this advisable or should I just replace the whole assembly sith a hose and live with it?
Thanks from a cajun that don't do 110 volt power cords coming out the side of my tractors.
