Block heater on a 6.0

I have a friend who has a superduty with a 6.0. He says it has a block heater on it, but the cord is a item he needs to order from Ford. The local dealer stated it was an hour long project for them to put it on for him. My question is, where is the cord going to for it. If the dealer can put a cord on why can't he just buy some electrical cord and do it him self. I looked under his truck breifly but did not see the block heater or a cord. Where does it go into the motor at?
I know where they are on my 7.3 motors, but do not know if it is different on a 6.0.

Re: Block heater on a 6.0

Block heater is on the passenger side, above the starter. Cord routes to the front of the vehicle and gets tucked behind the passenger side fog/driving light.
Only those vehicles originally sold in the colder, northern states gets the block heater chord. All have the heater installed.
Not sure how Michigan doesn't make the list as a cold state??... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Re: Block heater on a 6.0

My dealer said that the cord doesn't come with the truck unless the dealer orders it......even in Northern states.....

Re: Block heater on a 6.0

My '05 SD was sold in NC which certainly isn't noted for its cold weather and it came with the heater and the cord. Is this more "cost savings" on Fords part like leaving the fender liners off a $40K truck?

I bought fender liners from a guy on eBay for ~$60. I can't believe they didn't install them on my '05. The block heater cord sounds like the same sort of penny pinching.

Re: Block heater on a 6.0


Firesmith,

Make sure your buddy has looked REAL good for the cord. Mine was fastened with one of those plastic threaded connector thingies (technical term) to the radiator post on the passenger side above the fog light. I had to reach down in there with a pair of tin snips to cut it loose. Kind of a pain to find but it WAS there. Once I had it loose, I just laid it in the bumper between the fog lights and behind the license plate holder.

Hope this helps,
Roger

Re: Block heater on a 6.0

Thanks for all the info. I will look again for it next week and see if I can find it. It is a King Ranch and I can not believe they did not put it on a truck that cost that much. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Block heater on a 6.0

Trim level has nothing to do with it. However, you would think some of the items noninclusive would be standard on the Lariat and KR's.

Re: Block heater on a 6.0

Check ebay, someone was selling the factory cords a week or so ago for cheap.
