Is there not one on your truck. The heater part just screws into the oil cooler just above the oil filter....

If you have a 7.3 it should have a block heater from the factory
plug would be behind the left lower front bumper.

FROM TEXAS..

My truck is from Texas and I have been all over it and I have never seen one..It's 2002 where does it screw in the block? Over the starter or over the oil filter?

I was looking for a picture but can't seem to find on...

thanks for your help !
