Nice! What's the point of the silicone around the edges, does the heater not have an adhesive tear off pad

is the pump still working on your frost heater? if so maybe you can just stick it the frost heater's housing? ... that way you can still circulate the warmed coolant

The Zerostart heaters in the kit do not have a pump, they are convection type. Just a heating element in there.

I’ve had an element die on me, must have had an airlock in the housing; bought a replacement Zerostart & swapped the heating element instead of the whole assembly.

Your absolutely right there is no pump. I was actually surprised to find this out myself. My element burned out due to airlock. Then I got black soot circulating through my coolant. Must of been the outer skin of the element. A paper filter solved that issue quick , and also plugged off quick
