Block Heater intallation on a MF 231 (Perkins AD3.152 Engine)

Scott K I have a 1997 MF231 with the Perkins AD3.152 Diesel Engine in it. I wanted to add a block heater to it, so I ordered one that was specified for this model. It fits in a 1 1/4" Freeze plug hole. I pulled the freeze plug that is behind the fuel filter ("Driver's Side" Rear of the engine) as it was the easiest to get to. When I put the heater in, it would not seat all the way; the rim was 1/8"-3/16" away from the block and the element/retaining bolt was up against the inner wall of the antifreeze cavity.

Any suggestion on which freeze plug to pull next?

GEEBEE The Phillips & Temro site says for AD3 152, part# 3100013, install in right side with element pointing to 6 o'clock
