HPFP wires

I just read an article in Diesel Power magazine(December 2012) titled "6.4L Problems" and in it was saying that the wires in the hpfp gasket cover are bad to get chafed especially on the early 08s and cause a short and throw all sorts of codes as well as cause a low or no power problem. My question is all the time I've spent on here and other forums I have never heard of any such thing, I'm not saying it doesnt , I am just wondering how common a problem it really is. Has anyone else had any dealings with this issue ? And where bouts would these wires be located so they maybe could be insulated more against chafing ? Any info would be appreciated.

I have seen very few but they are out there. I had one two weeks ago, very low mileage 08, the wires short out on the pump cover. The new gaskets have more wire loom that's how easy the fix was. When it occurs it blows a fuse in the BJB and results in a no start. It's one of the problems I believe 99 percent of them have been fixed except ones like I just had that was low mileage and therefore would have been a problem years ago on a truck that was daily driven.

Still makes me edgy about my 08 bought in '10 that only had 33000 miles on it then. Thanks for the info though.
