I am not exactly sure how to install this
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 months ago

You have three freeze plugs on the cylinder block, any will work, but usually, the center one is most accessible. Plug is removed, and the heater probe installed and tightened up. See link below.

Ok so if i am in the seat are these on the left side?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Hello?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 months ago

Would be on the side opposite the injection pump for more clearance.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
OK that doesn’t help me because I have no idea what the injection pump looks like
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 months ago

The injection pump has the high-pressure fuel lines that go to the cylinder head, You need to be on the side that is basically open with nothing covering the freeze plug locations. Did you see the three holes shown in the block picture I sent?

Left side, below the exhaust manifold, can't see the plugs with the stuff in the way!

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Well maybe that’s why I can’t see them either because I can’t find them
