[QUOTE]Since I am speaking of the comfort of a working truck as my truck is now, I need to ask (Do I feel lucky?) a few questions that I am reluctant to ask. The plug had diesel fuel on it? I know this may have caused the short but more importantly the little bit of fuel, a PROBLEM? I have read that a little is normal but...QUOTE]
That little bit of fuel on the plug shouldn't have shorted it out. The fuel may be coming from the fuel bowl drain valve o'rings. I would get a set of o'rings (2) 1/4"IDX1/2"OD Viton if you can find them, easy to change, takes a #20 Torks for the screws. If your going to get a new heater, IH has the o'rings also, Ford wants $55 for a whole new valve.
