Take the filter out,remove the stand pipe( its a reverse thread) it may only be hand tight.Under that is a stainless steel plate with an element,Unplug it and remove the element from the plate,put the plate back on,standpipe back on,filter in,cap on,your done.Or you can just unplug it from the connection on the outside of the bowl,but that leaves a hot wire that could short out if not well taped and secured,although using this method it can be plugged back in when it gets colder.Greg

My truck is still down. I unpluged the wire on the drivers side at the bottom(blue wire with an end like the ones on heat or oil sending unit)replaced the fuse and tried to start. Wait to start light came on and just as soon as I turned it over the fuse blew again. There is a wire just above the one I unpluggerd with a banjo shaped end and looks to be a brown wire. Is this the wire I need to unhook? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes I got mine to running about 2 hours ago. Here is what I did. First thing remove the cover from the fuel filter area so you can see what you are doing instead of trying to do everything through the little door. Second This where you need to decide which corse you will take. A remove heater or B unplug heater. If you choose A then remove fuel filter , drain fuel bowl , remove nut from the center shaft ( turn it clockwise because it is LH threads), remove the heater beneath it it will plug in on the drivers side of the fuel filter housing. If you chose B method on the drivers side of the fuel filter housing there is a wire that plugs into the side of the fuel filter housing that is about the size of a dime ( I think the wire is brown), this is what you will need to unplug . Third replace blown fuse. Forth crank truck and drive it like you stole it. I hope this helps.

By the way thanks to all of you for the help with my truck. I am glasd to see there are some good people in this world.

The plug on mine was the one about the size of a dimeand the second plug up from the bottom. It is real easy to unhook from the inside of your fuel bowl if you choose to go that route.

I think the real problem is that the fuel heater is run on the same line as the injector control module. So when the fuel heater shorts out and blows the fuse it keeps the injector controller and glow plug relay controller from getting power. I had the same problem today. I went over a big bump going about 50km/h and the truck suddenly died at speed. It took some fighting just to get it stopped and pulled off the road since everything is run on either pulleys or vacuum pumps. I believe the wires are brown and yellow for the plug.
