Exclamation Can't Find Engine Block Element Pins!

2010 F-250 6.4L. No factory engine block heater option. Have read that this engine shipped with the heater element installed, just buy the cord and plug it in.

Was further told that the pin connector is located near the starter.

Bought cord. Crawled under truck with flashlight. Searched for 15 minutes.

Can't find pin connector.

Does anybody have a diagram or a photo they could post?

I'd be eternally grateful (and toasty warm).

hahah... if you look at the thread on the "active topics" it just says "can't find engine block..." which is soooo true!

I can follow my cord and try to find the connector for you. Give me a little bit.

IDK, how different the 6.4L is from the 6.0L, but there is a spot to plug in the block heater cord right above the starter. On the 6L it is pretty easy to see, must be different than the 6.4L. Good Luck on getting everything figured out!

I don't think so. The cord I purchased has a 2-prong female receptacle with a screw-on collar to keep the cord fastened to the heater element's prongs.

I was expecting the male prongs to be sticking out of the engine block.

if I followed that harness up further it appeared to branch in two. Can you take a pic of your cord?

I'm at work and don't have access to it or a camera. But I bought it off e-bay.

I haven't seen mine but have been told the heater is above the starter. The above photo is the wire separator that pulls apart if you forget to unplug in the morning.
