I'm the proud owner of an 2003 E-450 turbo diesel - for tailgating. My friend, an army vet who worked on tanks and humvees, is my mechanic. He's going back to school and doesn't have a lot of time to work on my machine. I need to ensure I'm getting the right parts when I order them.

I ordered a glow plug relay and I think it may be the wrong one. Here's the part from O'Reilly's.

Also, if anyone could send a picture of theirs or where it is located, I'd appreciate it. I think he has the schematics, but I'm trying to be helpful.

Thanks everyone!

Also, I didn't order the part here, I have connections to get it wholesale.

also, dotn get an auto parts store relay. they are crap. get a stancor. these are highly reccomended. they can handle the 200 amp draw much better. ill be gettign one before winter as well. here is one vendor, there are a few. one, and i dont recall where has about a $20 shipping fee so try for a shipping quote ahead of time...

Freaking awesome! Thanks! I spent awhile searching today and just couldn't find a good picture. That, and I wasn't 100% what to look for. I did see people say that the Stancor was good. I'll get that ordered up.

I'm great with computers, but know nothing about engines. My buddy and I swap services.
