fpr clean or new?

OK ive got the filter bowl and regulator off the truck... I have the pdf on the heater update.. ive call ford and IH about parts. now i need some advice..
1. Should i try to clean or replace my fpr. see pictures below
* what does the tube from the bottom of bowl to bottom of fpr do and
what about the steel wool look alike in the fpr, where the tube enters the regulator, do..
* please some feed back on my screen condition!
2. how important is this heater? when is it on, ive heard it can be done with out in warm climates does this effect starts or is this a go down the road ambient temp triggered heater. trucks all ready difficult to start.

OK I checked and cleaned what little bit of stuff was on the screen out. I was going to check the fuel heater, but. How do you remove the plate in the bottom ot the fuel bowl that the filter sits on? By the way the work I did last week made a HUGE difference.

Well I guess I need to do it again. Im thinking I need to remove the snap ring? Is there a screen in there? The only one I cleaned was the little one between the regulator and fuel bowl.

I dont know if I have to remove the heater. I just wanted to look under the filter plate, just to see how it looked under there.
