Freeze plugs are on the cylinder block, and the ones for block heater are usually on the side opposite the injection pump. Below the exhaust manifold. Depending on the heater element, usually the freeze plug is removed, then the heater slipped into the hole, and has an expanding part, that is tightened, to hold it in place.

This model does not show freeze plugs, here is the optional 1000 watt heater and location where it would go.
