International block heater cord

First off does anyone know the part number for the block heater cord from international? I called them. And they said they need the part number.

I have a block heater on my truck. It just isn't working. To replace is it as easy as yanking the other one out and plugging the new one in? Or do you have to spin or unhook anything? Thankjs

You can go to just about any farm store and get a replacement cord. Sure, it isn't all fancied up with the split loom and little xmas tree things, but it's only about $20. You can get the same thing on ebay for jsut a little more as well, whatever you want though.

It's been a while, but if I remember right, you have to push the cable end into the plug, then there is a screw on collar that retains the cable to the heater.

Are you sure its the chord and not the element? If its the chord I would just buy a new one. If you were to splice in a new plug you have the possibility of starting a fire IMO.

This is as close as I can find for the International cord # Z3500043

If you are thinking about replacing the heater itself, I think I had found that "Kats" was the manufacturer of those.

my plug got trashed and started sparking on from tons of use, I bought the ford one. It wasn't that much money and came pre-push pinned up and wire loomed and had the correct connecting snap ring on the end.

old one is easy to remove just pull off the element at the block and pop off the old push pins.

Getting the new one in was F-IN!!!! PITA! OMG I spent like 3 hrs on a friday night trying to get it in. the worst part is the that cord is routed below the block but above the mounting plate making small hands a must to get it routed correctly.

shouldn't be too bad though, I made sure that all the push pins and routing were exactly the way it was to avoid future chaffing problems.

My OE plug went bad my first winter. I was using a non GFCI and one day went up in smoke, almost took the truck. It actually burnt some chrome off of the front bumper.

It was single digits when I was under the truck doing the new cord. Sucked.
