mine was tiewrapped to the right pos battery cable. If that doesn't work, look at the oil filter. the wire going in to it just above the filter is the heater. Just trace it to the front of the truck.

I found mine down by the drivers headlight in the grill. I had to trace it back from the block but I found it.

First off what year truck is it. I believe the 6.0L came with the block heater but no cord. The simpliest way to tell is look through the drivers side wheel well and see if there is an orange colored plug coming off the engine by the oilfilter. That is where the block heater is at on the engine. If the plug is there and attached to the engine then just follow the wire up the frame and it will take you to the end that plugs into the electrical outlet. I recommend you get this through the grill or run it to the front of the front bumper near the fog lights for easy access. Also I recommend if you plug it in at your house you get a GFCI plug to plug it into. That is just a safety tip. If your truck does not have the cord but has the block heater. You can get the cord from the dealership. If you need more help please ask as we will be more then glad to assist you.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say he doesn't have a 6.0 since this is the 94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke discussion section and considering the title of the thread...lol. It's okay Bigcountry...just giving ya a hard time.
I think Jon hit it on the head for you....behind the headlight.

Did I mention I almost failed reading Comprehension in school. Also I am dislexic. But either way if he sees where it is plugged into the engine block he can just follow the cord to the other end.

LOL...yeah, he can find it that way for sure reguardless of the year model.
But on those years the cord was behind the headlight so if you look there, you shouldn' thave to crawl around under the truck to find it! You can easily hang it out through the grill and use a ziptie to secure it.
