Part number is AR87167.
Installs on side of engine block. Depending on your engine type, you may also need to install the engine heater adapter, AM882530.

I have drain plugs down each side of engine ;And a threaded plug on one side that looks to small to receive the heater. I know how to put one in but witch side i am not sure .I really wont to be sure before i knock out a plug .

Those are not drain plugs. Other than the threaded plug, they are know as "Freeze Plugs".
Sometimes, if the proper amount of freeze protection(anti-freeze) is not added to the coolant system, they will get pushed out, relieving pressure to the engine block. Actually, they are only plugs. The holes on the outside of the block are placed there to remove Casting-Sand, after the block is removed from the casting. These plugs are installed to retain the liquid coolant.
So, they should be named " casting hole plugs".
But, that was not my call, all those years ago. :lol:

At least I asked.:flag_of_truce:

Beere, :drinks: rhymes with Deere...............:laugh:

Trust us, that engine block heater will make a world of difference when cranking it up these cold mornings, not to mention less strain on your battery.
Did you install a battery-tender yet? I use them on everything I have, even in the summer.

Up date

Just finished putting in ablock heater in my 110 ; and a battery tender. Had to start it today to lift loader out of the way. IT started at 0 with the help of ether . Putting block heater in is difficult do to pipes not able to get wrench on it to get it as tight as i would have liked. did get it snug by wrenching where the plug goes. Ihope that will work got to use it tomorrow to dig grave. If it starts getting real cold to night' god test.
