7.3L Ford IDI
1987 - 1994
- Glow Plug Connector Set -
Made in the USA
For a long time we have been taking calls from customers asking if we had the glow plug harness ends for their Ford IDI 7.3L Diesels. After being forced to say "No" many times, we finally decided to take the time to find an answer. The original connectors are now well over 20 years old, and most of them are in really sad condition. Unfortunately, the OEM connectors are long ago obsolete, as are the complete harnesses. Poor 7.3 glow plug connections lead to low current flow, poor starts, and problems with the resistance sensing controller used in this application.
What these ARE:
After spending more time than was justifiable calling connector companies and determining that no close facsimile of the original was to be found, we came up with the next best alternative. These are heavy duty, high quality "MADE IN THE USA" heat shrink bullet IDI connectors. You will need to cut off your old terminals from the existing wires, remove a short strip of insulation, and crimp the new terminals onto your existing wiring. The upper section of the connector will then need to be heated to shrink it to the wiring. Each connectors is internally coated with a glue like substance that melts when heated to create a moisture tight seal with the wire.
What these are NOT:
Please don't expect an exact duplicate of your original connectors. The OEM parts simply are not available anymore. These 7.3 Powerstroke glow plug connectors do not have the positive snap retention system the original connectors did. However, they fit snugly and stay in place nicely.
What these will fit:
1987 - 1994 Ford IDI Diesels. They will not fit 1987 or earlier models with flat spade connector glow plugs. They are not intended for 1994 and later Powerstroke engines.
