Tell me a bit about the engine.  What size is it?  Are there ANY
modifications at all to it, namely any ignition (009 or 050 distributor?) or
carburetion "upgrades"?  Also, have you done a compression check and valve
adjustment lately?  It's summertime... if you've verified that the preheater
tubes work, that should be MORE than sufficient and I tend to think you may
be barking up the wrong tree by adding a heater.

Oh, yah, I see... brownnosing to us so we like you, eh?  Wise guy... (just
kidding :-)
