02 7.3 Fuel Filter Housing Wiring

There is a plug in on the back of the fuel filter housing that controls some sort of heater system that melted on me. Ford apparently don't make this plug anymore and my dealer has told me to spend to $200 on an engine wiring harness to get this fixed. So I'm searching for this plug if anyone has some junk parts laying around. Or, do I really need this part? The truck runs fine now (after a fuel leak fix and new transmission (unrelated to the fuel leak I just wanted to throw that in there)).

I'll try to get a picture posted of what I'm looking for, any help is appreciated.

Or maybe suggest another part that might use the same plug.

Here's the best suggestion....

Forget It altogether

There's a Ton of people who just leave them disconnected. I'm not sure who Actually needs a fuel heater, I don't think Anybody in the Lower 48, but chances are you're fine without it.

the fuel heater is there to burn off the gel that diesel leaves after a long period of time, i know of people unplugging it cause it would blow the fuse and your truck wont start, and they have checked the fuel bowl after a year of running it without a heater and its fine, so dont worry about it
