Glow plug Relay

Anyone have any idea on a part number for the glow plug relay on the 7.3 idi's. I don't want the whole assembly and that is how everyone wants to sell it.

Went out to start the truck this morning, held the switch and she didn't want to start. Lots of smoke, no fire. Got out the volt meter and confirmed that the relay is shot. I have been looking all day for JUST the relay itself and I have had no luck.

Anyway, just figured someone on here might have a part number or a source maybe.

Thanks for the help.

If you want just the relay, I have used a old Ford style starter relay to test before. It might work for a long time. I have just used them for 2-3 starts.

Relay

Thanks for the responses guys. I like the idea of the Stancor, it looks a lot heavier duty than the stock pos. I think I will give that a try.

Relay

Hey all,

Just thought I would let you know what I found. I thought my glow plug relay was bad, but with a little more tinkering I discovered a different problem.

As you know, one leg of the relay should have power at all times. When I was attempting to confirm my relay was bad, I noticed that when I grounded the switch I could hear the relay click but I got no power across the main poles. Just by dumb luck, I stuck the test light on the constant power pole and hit the switch, bam, no power on the constant side. Long story short, I was loosing power to the constant side when I hit the switch. I wound up chasing it back to the driver side of the truck, where I found both main power wires almost completely burned in half!!

This will no longer be a problem since I ran a single 4 gauge welding cable straight from the battery to the glow plug relay. I figure if it works for the starter to be wired this way, it should work well for my glow plug relay also.

Anyway, figured I would let you all know what I found in case someone has a similar problem in the future.

Happy Holidays

I'd want to ask the question: What caused your main power wire to burn in half like that? that is a safety concern.

glow plug relay replacment for ford 7.3 power stroke

I have a western snow plow relay installed in my 1995 f350 7.3 works fine. But you have to do some modification on the install. The part # is 56131k-2 they are around the same specs as the stancor and are only 12 dollars any at any Western plow shop. I know guys who have used them for years.And no trouble.
