Diesel Cold Start

I HAVE A 1979 240D. UNFORTUNATELY THE PREVIOUS OWNERS FAILED TO PUT A BLOCKHEATER. WHEN IT GETS BELOW 24* F THE CAR SIMPLY WON'T START (IT HAS LOOP TYPE GLOW PLUGS) I TRIED TO OPEN THE SPACE BEHIND THE STARTER TO INSTALL A BLOCKHEATER, BUT CANNOT BREAK THAT BOLT. WILL CONVERTING TO PENCIL TYPE BLOCKS HELP AT ALL? SOMEONE TOLD ME TO CONNECT A SECOND BATTERY IN SEQUENCEWILL FIRE THE CAR UP AT ANY TEMPERATURE IS THIS TRUE?
