Oil sump heater q's?

I was taking some parts off a rusted out '71 and saw something weird on the bottom of the engine.

It turned out to be an oil heater. It was fitted very nicely to the "tuna can" on the bottom of the 1.7L. It was not a home made unit at all. everything was fabricated well and bolted up using existing hardware.

Has anyone heard of this before?

Thanks

I have one that is setup for the deep sump "pan" we use for racing.

I'm going to assume its for cold weather climate cars.

We use it to pre-heat the oil prior to starting a race car. Same concept.

It didn't have the plug attached, only about 2' of cord. Does it use a standard 120/1/60 outlet plug?

How does it regulate heat? Something must shut off the heating element???

Thanks for the info.

The one I have is 110. The shutoff is based on YOU.

We run temp gauges in the bottom of the engine (ala 2.0 style) and when it almost came up to 100deg.. we would unplug it.

Our Winston Cup cars have a heating element wrapped around the dry sump tank.
