Talking Block Heater location 116 79' 300SD

Can someone tell me exactly where the block heater is located on my 116 79' 300SD? Someone told me on the right side but that is kind of vague. Behind the turbo? I have looked and I cannot find it. Thanks in advance, Mark =)

For me, it's in the lower radiator hose

I believe the OE is above and towards the front of the starter. If you can't follow your electrical cord to the heater, there's a good possibility you don't have one. In that case, install a lower radiator hose heater. It's much easier and almost as effective as the OE type.
