96 f350 with a different glow plug relay

wondering why my glow plug relay is different from all the other ones i see. mine has 2 terminals directly across from eachother and a 2 wire plug in on the side. i read that cali trucks had a different style glow plug relay but pretty sure mine is not one because it doesnt have the c on the end of the model number on the valve cover and also it was built in kentucky. wondering if i can use the normal 4 post relay and just do away with the plug-in part

The early trucks (like my 94) used a relay that had the control wires plugged in with a weathrepack connector. I've never heard of a 96 having one, but I guess it's possible. Ford used to sell a kit that had the 4-post relay like you normally see and a pigtail that converted the weatherpack connector out to wires with ring terminals. You could get the 4-post relay (I would get the Western Plow or White-Rodgers) and just cut off the weatherpack connector and splice on some ring terminals. Cheers!

when i ordered parts in i bought a relay from xdp just to have around for when mine went out and never put 2 an 2 together until it actually came in and i looked at it. on the xdp website they dont even have a different option for glow plug relays from 94-03. so maybe i could use this one and just do away with the plug?

That is because the relay that patrick is talking about for the 94 is obsoleted. They have been replaced by the 95-03 ones. You would need to retrofit the 95-03 solenoid to fit the 94. NOT a big deal. But ALSO, like he said, it was a 94 thing, your 96 should not have it
