I've been leaking fuel through the fuel heater since winter, finally got around to fixing it. It definitely helps to cause air-intrusion when leaking.

Anyway, as many guys as bought the o-rings from NAPA, nobody put down a part number...
Larger O-ring= NAPA AUTO PARTS
Smaller O-ring= NAPA AUTO PARTS
Keep in mind that the pictures are representative images, and look NOTHING like the o-rings you'll get.
(And in order to get these links, I had to go to the dumb NAPA, measure the o-rings with a caliper, and then buy them with the part numbers on the drawers they are in. SO STUPID! You can't search napaonline.com for o-rings! I hate their site, it's one of the worst business sites I've ever been to.)

As for Orielly's, they can't even order them into the stores. They have them online, sure, but it'll cost you $10 TO SHIP 2 O-RINGS.

Anywho, these fit great and I'm now 2 days leak-free. Truck starts better too.

Oh and pay attention to the part where you separate the male contact lead from the plastic housing(picture #5 from RupeJosh). I didn't realize there was a barb on it, and ended up breaking that lead. Which is brass so I couldn't solder it... if anyone has one of those in working order I need one! Thanks!

-Joshua
Thanks for that link!

For my 1990 will I have the single o-ring or 2 o rings?

Thanks!

I fixed one with a 1/2in npt tap and brass pipe plug.
Fixed mine this weekend using this method - thanks for the tip! I live in Central Texas so not a big loss deleting the heater.

'93 f-450

the heater elements o-ring was ok once i inspected it as i had figured,but the issue with mine was,that the actual inside of the e-connector was filling up full of fuel and flowing over from there,so the only way to fix that would be with a new heater element or simply plug the hole.at the cost of those oem heaters,i chose to tap and plug the hole with jb welded threads for a nice permanent leak free fix.

Keep an eye on it if you used a steel plug. The one I used first vibrated loose multiple times before I chucked it and replaced with brass. No leak since.

I have a 1990 7.3 in my F250 and it has had this problem. I went to the local farm store for O-rings & they didn't have the Vitons but I was able to size the ones that I needed. My type uses 2 o-rings, not one as some.

1/2" 5/8" 1/16"
014's

5/8" 3/4" 1/16"
016's

I emailed these guys & they said that for diesel the best bet is these.They work perfect:



You get 50 of each for about $15 total. If those listing are gone, search for sellers: "Penske40"

This is not difficlt or a time consuming job. I did have a little trouble getting the electrical spade to push down through the plastic to get to the inside o-ring. Look straight doun on it & bend the little tab so it is inline with the hole. I suggest you take a magnifying glass & look at the tab BEFORE you start to mess with it. You'll see what you need to do.

Watch that video above about turning the filter assemble upside down & rebolting to remove that center bushing!!! Excellent idea! Keep it stock for a few bucks & a little time. I would go to the Hastings FF1039-SP filters tough & have the Drain Valve & Sensor Port right in the filter. Do away with that bottom plate.

I fixed mine a little while back. My locals didn't have any o-rings that worked so I took some o-ring material and made one that fit good. So far so good. Having fuel issues, but the heater is dry!

You are welcome kind sir! I know how you feel. I did my first one in a trailer park in Oregon with no bench vise or large sockets. It was a bear, but after I figured out a few tricks, I can do one in about 30 minutes! I like to keep my trucks as original as possible, so plugging it was a last option for me.

Hello,

I'm a new owner to a 1988 7.3 diesel and have this issue. Does anyone know where I can get the black housing that connects to the fuel heater (spade)? Do I have to purchase the whole harness? Thank you-

Salvage yard. If you don't live in an area with extreme cold you could tap the hole and put in a pipe plug.
