Engine block heater power connector location

I just bought a power cord for the 6.0 engine block heater from ebay. A dealer told me that all 6.0 engines come with the block heater installed but the power cord is optional. Does anyone know where the connector for the block heater is located on the engine? I'm told somewhere on the left side but I don't see it.

Thanks in advance for any info.

The 7.3 has the connection on the left (drivers) side.... 6.0 has it on the right (passenger) side at the rear of the motor, above the starter.

It was on the left side on the 7.3L engines, but on the right side on the 6.0.

Re: Engine block heater power connector location

If you get under the truck and look up right above the starter at the very back corner of the block, you will see the block heater. It is silver with visable threads and a hex below the threads. I just put the cord on mine last weekend.

Re: Engine block heater power connector location

The dealer told me that if the power cord is not initially ordered it does not come with one......Why would any Northern dealer purchase diesels without a power cord?????????

Re: Engine block heater power connector location

How much is the cord and is it pretty easy to install on your own ?

Re: Engine block heater power connector location

From what I have read in previous posts its about 40 to $50 from a dealer. Check out Ford Doctors site for installation instructions. www.forddoctorsdts.com [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Engine block heater power connector location

If it is for the truck in your signature the cord should have been installed at the factory you just have to break the zip tie that has it held out of the way (sight). They (FMC) did not start their "Value" stuff until 05.

Re: Engine block heater power connector location

From Napa it was $18 and change. Not hard to install other than getting the threaded locking ring started, that just takes some patience which I have a very limited supply of. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]
