Block heater cord

I need to replace my block heater cord on my V10 and before I buy one online, for the ones that replaced their cord before, can you please verify the below cord from Kat's is the right one?

Kat's 28216 6' Replacement Cord : Amazon.com : Automotive
Kat's 28216 6' Replacement Cord : Amazon.com : Automotive


From my research this seems to be the right one but I'm not 100% sure.

Thank you.

Didn't know the V10s had one, but that looks like the cord from a 7.3 diesel

Called Kats product support and the cord for the V10 is below:

Kat's 28400 18/3 Gauge, 5' Replacement Cord : Amazon.com : Automotive Kat's 28400 18/3 Gauge, 5' Replacement Cord : Amazon.com : Automotive

Way cheaper than the dealer at $102.

Just found out my local NAPA has one in stock -- same price, no waiting.

I was also surprised to find the V10s had that option as well. Mine has one in fact, which you may think is odd since I live in California. My truck was a Canadian export though when it was new so that may be why it has one (I also have the daytime running lights mandated in Canada). When it was just a year or two old though it was "imported" back into the US and I doubt it will ever be used again, if it was every used at all.

Anyhow, thanks for posting the correct one and glad you were able to figure it out, and at a great price. I buy a lot of my parts on Amazon, and what I don't buy from Amazon I get from RockAuto.

One thing that kinda surprised me was to see a cord hanging behind the front bumper on my father-in-law's '98 Navigator so I traced it back to the engine compartment and sure enough it was connected to the block heater.

I also have a Kat's 1000 Watt Aluminum Circulating Tank Heater installed in my daily driver (5 spd 3 cylinder Metro) that works really well. I plug it in 30-45 mins before I leave for work -- I get instant heat and I'm at normal operating tempeture 1/4 of a mile later.

Never would have expected one on a Navigator. The rest of my family lives in Alaska though, and usually only Diesels have plug-ins (except maybe in the interior, such as Fairbanks). At least I know what they are though and don't think they are electric cars or something like a lot of people in California.

Sammatt1 where is the block heater located on yuor V10? I'd like to look and see if this is something that maybe installed but not have the plug/cord attached. Probably would never need it here as most mornings around here are no colder than 20's in the morning but would be nice for the once and a while morning that is 0

I will take a pic when I install the new cord tonight. It's close to the oil filter.

Driver side. Between the exhaust down pipe and the oil filter.

Go to the Ford Truck section. It shows the V10 option.

http://www.fivestarmanufacturing.com...e527/DC12.aspx

Based on the catalog above part# 11606, Amazon has this:
http://www.amazon.com/Kats-11606-Wat.../dp/B000I8TPM8

Napa online shows this heater as well.
