Warm Start For Cold Engines
"Beats jumper cables," says Hayden Elder, inventor and manufacturer of Motor-Mate, a new concept for starting stubborn tractor, truck or car engines in cold weather.
Water from a warmed up pickup, car or truck is circulated through the cold engine. The Motor-Mate kit includes hoses and quick-couplers to connect the two engine blocks together so water from the warm engine can circulate through the cold engine.
"It takes about ten minutes to warm a cold engine," explains Elder. "Warm antifreeze is transferred to the cold engine which then forces cold antifreeze back to the service vehicle to be warmed and recirculated. It avoids damage to starters, batteries and engines by warming the inside of the motor."
The kit includes two 12 ft. extension hoses, two short engine extension hoses which are permanently attached for quick-hookup of the Motor Mate, plus all the clamps, tees and adapters needed to interconnect two water-cooled systems. Any standard equipped, water-cooled car, pickup or truck can be used as the service vehicle. Complete kit sells for about $70.00.
