thank you so much, that fixed it but this is a temp fix, did you ever actually replace anything or just leave it like this, do you have any drivability issues? thanks once again life savers!

Replacing the heater is easy to do.
Get a new one from International not Ford.
When mine went Ford wanted like $200 or more (I can't remember exactly). I got mine from International for like $30 or $40 bucks.

Its really simple. If I remember correct.

Pull fuel filter, unscrew old heater (I think it was 2 screws),
pull out old heater and unplug the electrical connection.
Then plug the new one in and screw it down.

Replace fuel filter (prob. better off with a new one)
then plug the connection to the fuel bowl that you already unplugged replace fuse and you are done.

Hope this helps.
