There are for sale/wanted sections which would be better than this for you.
Other thing, why you want the connector? You don't need it really. Just trying to save you some money.

I unplugged mine when the heater shorted out. That was almost a year ago. With a decent fuel additive you shouldn't have a problem.

You shouldn't need the fuel bowl heater. I unplugged mine when it shorted out, and never put a second thought into replacing it, and have had zero problems.. and some pretty damn cold days since then. Is your glow plug relay in good shape?

I've never actually had to test mine, but when you turn the key on, you should get 12 volts on the switched side of the relay. Or, try jumping the two large posts on the relay with a screwdriver before you start it cold, and see if that works.

How many miles are on your truck?
