fuel bowl heater on '96?

Hey guys,

Just brought my '96 into the garage for a service, drained the bowl to clean it and replace the filter, and I noticed it doesnt have a bowl heater like I have seen in photos.

Is this normal? Is there supposed to be a bowl heater on the '96 PSD?

thanks!

yea, mine has the heater. If its not there, someone probably removed when the soilder broke, and it shorted out and blew a mega fuse. If your interseted in replacing it, theres a thread here somewhere that shows you how, using one from a newer 7.3.

well shoot. This probably has a good deal to do with my "lazy" injectors.

For the retrofit, do you use the entire bowl from a newer PSD, or just the heater?

No, use just the new heater. I think you have to drill a new hole in the bowl though.

Not unless its shorting out against the bowl.
The soilder broke on mine, allowing the end of the element to touch the side of the bowl, causing the short to ground.

Here's a .pdf about replacing the fuel bowl heater. You do not have to drill a hole for the heater, just a little bit of grinding with a dremel cut off wheel and a sharp screw driver inside the fuel bowl, but nothing hard at all. It was real easy to do. Took about 20-30 minutes to complete. I bought the heater from an International parts supplier for around $20.00 or so. Hope this helps.
