Default 7.3 problems

My 1996 F350 shut of on me Wednesday driving down the road. I found a leak in the fuel bowl heater plug. What type of fix is recommended? Is a delete a bad idea?

you dont need a fuel heater, i would plug it if you can. or if you have the money you can do an electric fuel system and be done with a fuel bowl all together.

You must run the electric? How does that work for you? I have a stock 96 350 so I'm looking for some simple upgrades for now.

im sure you could find a way to plug the leak without having to delete the bowl. but if you want to delete the bowl you will have to go to a eletric system. as far as upgrades i would do gauges, intake, exhaust, chip then the electric fuel system. the fuel system is a good upgrade. it smooths out the idle and keeps constant pressure to the injectors.
