    Default PRE-HEATER photos needed for mag article

    NEED HELP

    As some of you know, I occasionally submit poorly written articles to FLY-LOW magazine.
    The article I had planned for this month did not pan out and I need to come up with one fast. Like by tonight....

    Usualloy I submit three pages and they edit it down to the point of making no sense at all. But what the heck...

    I am asking for a couple photos of home-made or other types of engine pre-heaters and I am asking for permission to have those photos published. I can say photo provided by ( your Name) if that makes you happy.

    If you have any could you please e-mail them in a fairly large e-mailable size to me at

    Alex, I am afraid I am not very helpful...my favorite preheat is 2 x 250W Wolverine sump heaters with my 1000W Honda generator. Works pretty nice. Not very photogenic.

    On the other hand, if you are so desperate that you want a photo of what it looks like when you preheat this way...feel free to use the following:

    I have a Red Dragon and an old metal five gallon can heater. I was hoping for a nice photo of the ammo-can style heater.

    My old metal 5 gallon can with a white-gas camp stove inside. It made a good tent heater, but not such a great engine pre-heater.
    I dug it out for photos today and found the bottom had rusted completely away from it. I guess sitting around for 30 plus years will do that.
