Hi ya all, I'm thinking of putting a heater up front as the 2kw diesel heater in the cab is a waste of time. Issue is, where are the heater circuit connections on the engine, if in fact there are any??

Cannot say where the take off and return are but another thing to consider is that you will most likely need an electric pump to push or pull the water forward.
My 8.0m bus had one fitted and have seen them fitted in other buses as well.
When I did bus to M'home conversion I left two of the 4 radiator units in place, one under the dash for demisting and the other down by the drivers feet.

On most engines there will be a blanked off fitting for heating at the top of the thermostat housing and the other will be where the bottom rad hose goes back in
Failing that you can fit a tee piece in the top and bottom rad hoses and use those.

I agree that I may need a pump. I did however do some heaters on a boat with GM motors they pumped the water a long way and up about 3 meters. Even I was surprised at the height.

Ill let you know
