Block Heater

Hello everybody,
I'm new to the website because I drive a DURAMAX and my son drives a Ford. I did at one time own a 1990 7.3 and it was a nice truck though.
Anyway my son was looking for the block heater for the truck and he can not find it. I have not looked but being from New England you would think that it came with one. Its a 97 F-350. All kidding aside. I have allways loved the F-350 and the 7.3. If only Chevy could come out with a more durable front end and some better looks like Ford I would get a new one

block heater is above the oil filter ...the cord will be tied somewhere between the front left bumper, grill and the frame...use a 12 gauge electrical cord...these heaters draw 1000 W...hth

So if I went and got a cord it would just hook up somewhere under the hood?

the block heater is located just above the oil filter...you'll see the cord if its there...if its not the heater has a 2 prong connection...its simply a screw-in element that runs off 110...hth

How is one supposed to know if its operational? I've got it plugged in as the weather is 20 degrees but I get lots of white smoke on startup but I just wait fora coupe glow plug cycles and she fires right up?

Could be tired injectors. Easiest way is to just feel around the heating element.
