Sound Marine Diesel, LLC is now a Wolverine engine heater dealer.
Wolverine engine heaters provide the following benefits:
The bottom line - Wolverine heaters will prolong the life of your
expensive engine, while maintaining engine performance and greatly
reducing wear. They are cheap insurance, that saves you money!
- Improve crankability, particularily during cold
weather. This means less wear and tear on the engine starter and
batteries, and quicker engine starts.
- Reduce cold start wear, by ensuring oil easily and
quickly flows to the engine bearings during startup. Oil pressure
builds rapidly, since there is minimal flow resistance. This feature
alone, will save you money and expensive engine repairs.

- Reduce white exhaust smoke at startup, by helping to
maintain engine compression, which leads to more complete fuel
combustion, and reduced blow-by.

Wolverine heaters are 120 volt AC powered, [240 volt powered are also
available] and cost little to operate. After installation, just plug
into shore power, and the heater immediatly starts to warm the engine.
Think of it as placing your engine on a stove. As heat rises, the
entire engine becomes warm, leading to the above benefits.
All Wolverine heaters have the heating element embedded in a pliable
silicone pad, that's .075 inch thick.
Unlike conventional engine block heaters, Wolverine heaters attach
externally to the engine oil pan, without any need to drain coolant
from the engine or remove a freeze plug.
Installation is straightforward. Just clean the engine oil pan bottom
of any accumulated oil, sand to clean metal, and apply the self stick
heating pad. Now plug in to shore power to keep your engine warm; ready
for a quick startup. There is no maintenance required.
