UVCH SHOT BUT THATS NOT ALL!!!

First id like to say this website is amazing, helped me pinpoint the problem almost immediately! Thanks

Next, I have a 97 F350, truck is used on the farm for hauling cattle. It was running great and than just like that it would barely idle and no throttle response at all. I replaced the cps to no prevail, today i pulled the valve covers and wouldnt you know it, harnesses are junk (no. 5&7 on passenger side, no.2&4 on drivers side). OK found the problem, and easy enough to fix. BUT the harness that runs to the valve cover the outside pin(cylinder no. 5&7) is melted! I followed the harness and looks pretty in depth. Any other options? Maybe just a new connector? If so where could i find one? Thanks for the help in advance!!! I know you guys can help!

And if you go back and look at their OEM stuff, they have the other UVCH stuff.

For sensors I would say yes but I dont think the wiring and gasket make as big of difference as long as the wires are copper and the Dorman ones I ordered from rock auto were
