I was replacing my fuel bowl heater element when the cap for the sensor inanverdently broke off. I've since just disconnected my heater and so far the truck is running and it hasn't blown a fuse. Is this ok or should I somehow replace it? I don't intend on using the fuel bowl heater element anymore.

Where would I get this part if I needed it anyway?

Are you talking about a cap or a the standpipe that comes up in the middle of the filter housing? I don't know of any cap, the heater is controlled by thermostat that is also the pass through connector for the heater.

The water in fuel sensor is in the bottom of the bowl so could that be what you broke?

You can run with no problems with the heater disconnected, thousands of trucks are doing in in very cold areas.

Fuel heater

]I agree with Bugman, you don't need that stinking fuel heater. I removed mine alltogether from the fuel bowl when I overhauled it but I still kept the wire connected on the outside just so that it wouldn't be hanging loose. These are the only parts that went back into the bowl.
