the manual claims there is a engine heater to plug in.


The engine heater is usually an optional accessory item


If you have an engine heater, than you need to locate it, get an extension cord and connect it to the cord and plug the cord into an active socket. If not either go to a local car parts store or the dealer and purchase one. On the farm in the 50's we used a heat lamp, but make sure it will not catch anything on fire and put a heavy blanket over the hood to keep the heat in if you have it garaged.
