Preheating is accomplished using electrical resistance heat in the form of thin pads sized and shaped to fit various parts. The pads are surface mounted with a bonding adhesive. This includes engine, accessory and propeller reduction gearboxes, attached accessories, and engine oil tank. Power is routed to the heating elements through a dedicated shore power plug, circuit protection, and wiring assembly. System is self-regulating, heated components reach an average state of thermal equilibrium in approximately six hours.
