The P1 Engine heater is designed to create cooling system temperature prior to starting the engine. Starting High Performance engines in cold temperatures & operating at high RPM to achieve normal operating temperatures creates excessive wear, noise & smoke pollution. Costly engine damage can also occur. Pre-heating an engine prior to starting minimises these problems and makes pre-race preparation much easier.
The P1 kart engine heater will take approximately 7 minutes to heat a water cooled kart engine to 50*C using a stable 240V power source. The P1 Engine heater has a fast, sensitive internal automatic temperature control that shuts the heater off once it reaches the desired temperature. The engine heater will automatically turn back on once the engine heater senses a temperature drop of approximately 10*C.
Installing the P1 Kart Engine Heater
**Any leaks in the cooling system will cause engine heater failure!**
***CAUTION ***Ensure that the heater is protected from external water. i.e. racing in wet conditions, washing etc . The heater MUST be “bagged” to prevent external water entering the electric heater components. Failure to do this can result in heater failure.
