How to remove the old block heater on 6245?  
  Started at Wed Oct 12 13:04:23 2016
The DEFA block heater is broken on my 6245 and has to be replaced by a new one, but how can I remove the old one?

The block heater is mountet on the left side of the engine. On the right side of the engine it is a plate, is it possible to se the block heaters backside if I open this plate?

They are normally hammered into the block instead of a frost plug. Drill a 5mm hole, stick a screwdriver in it and pry till it pops out.

Hammer the new one in with a socket that is just slightly smaller than the hole you put it into, after checking that the wrench square doesnt crush the connectors on the outside of the heater.


1967 Zetor 3011, technically new, needs paint
1973 Zetor 5718, repainted and shiny, rebuilding it bit by bit
1978 Zetor 5718, rough but full options !! (synchro box, power steering and 1000rpm PTO) wink

no i think the defa heater has a screw in the middle wich expands it in the hole to a conical shape as you tighten it.
