My understanding is the 6.4L does not have a block heater.

"All 6.4 PSD come with the block heater element installed from the factory but only these states have the cord in place as well:
Engine Block Heater (Std. in AK, CO, IA, ME, MN, MT,ND, SD, WI, WY)."

"If your truck was not originally ordered and shipped to one of these states, then the block heater cord was an Option that needed to be ordered with the truck. You can purchase the block heater cord from your dealer or local Navistar dealer and install the cord yourself."

If you have it, it will be on the right side of the engine bay in front of the intercooler near the hood release.

I know the element is there... I did some research, it would appear mine didn't come w/ the wiring harness option. I might check w/ the dealer on pricing and obtain the harness.

The truck is 2008... F350.

The harness is behind the bumper on passenger side. I was told by my dealer on saturday they all have the heater and almost all come with the cord, you just have to find it.
