fuel bowl heater

Pulled my fuel bowl out today to clean up some leaks. My heater element was separated from the plate it's supposed to be attached to. I looked up a new one one Guzzles site and the one like I have states it's for a 94-97 7.3. My truck is a 2000 f250. There is another element listed but does not give a year for it. Which should I buy?
Also, what is the sensor located in front of the hpop where the bolts go to hold the fuel bowl down? I broke that connector accidentally.
Thanks

This is the fuel heater you need - 1999 - 2003 Ford Fuel Bowl Heater Element

The sensor in front of the HPOP is the Exhaust Back Pressure Sensor. Exhaust Back Pressure Sensor 1997-2003 7.3L

Right - yours was a wire tack welded in a few places - they had a habit of breaking loose and shorting out. The one I linked to is the "updated" version.

interesting stuff, I must have a hybrid engine/truck. I have the old style heater and while I have things apart I did the fuel rail plug hole drilling like suggested by powerstrokehelp. He made mention in that video about the slight difference in plug bolts. I seem to have the pre 2000 bolt not yet the later model one. Makes me wonder if thie engine has ever been swapped. I do not have the older turbo wheel though. My truck also has the v8 emblem on the front fenders to, seemingly indicating a pre 2000?
