Fuel Bowl heater wire replacement?

Ok so i plan on going back home soon and would like to do some work on the fb, hoses, clean fpr screen and heater element. I have the bad fb heater element which causes fuse 22 to blow so the wire is cut. but i would like to replace the element and do the sd heater element mod to it and would need the new wire for it. does any one know what that connector is so i can get it? thanks

oh kinda on a side note, for those that have dont the fpr shime have most of you used a bb or a tiny bolt with the nut on it? cause i saw both in the write up in travis's write up thread and figured the bolt and nut would work better than the bb. just wondering for future refrence. thanks

Get the SD heater element from International not Ford. International is about $25.00, Ford is $100.00 Plus.
Re the FP Reg I used a BB. In most cases that is all that is needed. Just be sure it's a BB for a BB gun. Some have used a ball bearing of various sizes and they get jammed. Not good.

If you need instructions on how to do the SD heater Mod PM me with your E-mail address as that is the only way I have to send it.

I wouldn't bother with the SD heater. I saw a few weeks ago that Dorman has a replacement heater out for us. It looks like a better design and should be plug and play
Dorman Products - 904-210
Should be available at about any parts stores

Great find Tim. It looks like the SD heater with a longer pig tail which will eliminate the modding to our fuel bowel. Any idea what it costs?

Tim that just saved me a lot of time and headache thanks for that. but it says that it fits variuos 7.3L motors, ours is part of that various list right so its just a drop in?

and does any one know what the wire on the outside of the fb that connects to the heaeter element is? the one that causes a short and fuse 22 to blow.

The heater pedestals would come Un-soldered and short out the unit blowing fuse #22. With this SD style heater that's not going to happen. Don't forget that Amazon will charge ya for shipping so....depending on what that is it just may be cheaper to buy locally plus there would be no wait time.

Google "Dorman 904-210" and a whole bunch of merchants pop up.

Allow me to attempt to explain this...There is a "Terminal" that is fitted into the fuel bowl towards the bottom, The heater element plugs into this terminal from the inside. There is the wire that is protected by fuse #22 that plugs into the terminal from the outside completing the circuit.

Hope this helps.

Some long lost info!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A- Its a fuel "filter" heater. Over the years the word filter has been long
lost. I dont know why! If you look at the bottom of a fuel filter you will
see its made of metal. This metal transfers heat to the paper filter and
the crap on the filter. The sole reason for this is so the filter will have
ample flow in cold amb temps.

B- The oem heater was controlled by the 3 pads that mounted it.
These are resistor's to control the heat. In the link photo, you can
see the fine wire on the end of the heater. Its the control.

Just some dumb info i remember.
