John...getting back to your actual thread...
One thing I wanted to mention if you DO decide to run heat exchanger lines from the engine back to the heater sure to put stop **** valves in place on the ENGINE end of both out and return lines. That way...if you have a clamp fail or hose burst and lose your water/coolant, you can close the valves, re-fill and go start the engine.
I think I've said this before somewhere, but it bears repeating as so many installations I've seen just clamp the hoses on.
