Re: Fuel bowl heater
Here goes (the basic steps):
Drain the fuel Bowl and remove the cap and filter.
Remove the black plastic standpipe using a 7/8" crows-foot wrench (note that the standpipe is LEFTHAND THREADED
Disconnect the small spade connector inside the fuel bowl (driver's side) and pull out the heater (the plate with the wire on it ... or off it as the case may be)
Replace the heater making sure the little tab on the plate will keep the plate from rotating when the standpipe is tightened. Plug in the spade connector.
Reinstall the standpipe, filter and cap. Done!
You can also replace the normal OBS-style plate/wire with the SuperDuty-style element as it is less prone to failure (recommended). Part numbers:
Fuel Heater Element
Style: (Ford) F5TZ-9J294-A (94-97), (International) 1825186C91 (may not work, need to check)
SuperDuty Style: (Ford) F81Z-9J294-AA, (International) 1831196C92, (Dorman) 904-210
(requires some minor mods to fuel bowl to remove an inner rib, but supposedly the Dorman part does not require the mod and is probably much less expensive)
