I live in North Central British Columbia (read colder) and I'm installing a n in-line heater that goes in the lower rad hose and keeps the fluid warm. My buddy used on in his '79 F-150 and found that it worked better than a block heater. I believe that these heaters even circulate the warm fluid. For now I just slap a ceramic heater under the hood for a hour and away I go to work.

try phillipstembo.com
they sell a bolt on heater that heats the water line next to the block.
it might, and i'm guessing, even heat the oil. they are canadian, the
block heater maker, so i guess they would know cold. retails for about $72.00 us
and thanks

I was just talking to a guy that said you can buy magnetic heaters that he used to use on his heavy equipment. He would stick one on the block and another on the transmission. I will try to get more info and post it.

I just got off the phone with local parts store and they stock the magnetic ones for about $60. Way easier than any other heater....just stick on and plug in....but remember to remove it before driving. This is a great idea because you can then move it to a skidoo, snowblower, quad or whatever toy needs some heat! Temro part #3400017.
