It looks like it ties into the thermostat hsg..
does it have electrical wires coming off the bottom.??
It could be a coolant heater.??

It is a coolant heater. Generally that style is called a tank heater - at least in these parts.
As pump guy says it should have a cord on it so you can plug it in to house power. They are invaluable for helping get an engine in very cold weather.

Thanks, I’m putting rings in this Perkins and wasn’t sure what it was. My plan is to drop the oil pagan and see if I can pull the piston and connecting rod through the bottom.
