So I keep blowing the 22 fuse for the fuel bowl heater, I am trying to disconnect the fuel bowl heater, but do not know how to remove it. The newer models look easy, but the old models I can't figure it out. Here is a link with both the old and new fuel filter heaters, I have the old one. Does anyone know the steps on taking this out without having the stand pipe fall apart?
Unplug it from the out side of the bowl & replace the fuse ...

Drain the fuel bowl and remove the filter.
Using a 7/8" crows-foot wrench, remove the standpipe (note that is LEFTHAND THREADED!)
Unplug the heater element at the small spade connector on the inside of the bowl and remove the heater (which includes the plate). Now is a good time to thoroughly clean out the bowl!
Replace the heater (if you are going to the trouble to do it, get the Dorman 904-210 SD-style element) by plugging it in first
Replace the standpipe, filter and lid.
