Default SD UVCH

I've seen people mention going to the single plug UVCH on the obs, but no one has really done a write up that I could find.

So I have a few questions.

1. Can I keep my obs valve covers?
2. Can I swap the engine harness, vs just swapping the UVCH plugs? (A few of my glowplug pins are missing from the engine side of the harness anyways, and at least 3 outta 4 of the clips are broken off)

I'll probably think of more as we go along.

Valve covers should be the same, iirc, the 94's and 95's had less bolts, but 96-97's should be the same as super duties. Yes you can run a sd engine harness.

The 94-95 "less bolts" thing was on the intake plenums. Valve covers should be the same (except later ones were double walled). Cheers!

I have a blown up SD wiring diagram that I look at pin out/function/colors on, just haven't found a good obs one yet.

I say SD, but did they change to the single plug earlier?

I'm not sure on the Super Duty engine harness either, but it may work. It is something you would need to check.

Everyone that I know that has done the swap has adapted the OBS glow plug/injector harness to the single plug.

Did they just change the pigtail?

I was wondering about this today as well. is there an upside beyond the replacement plugs costing about the same $ except you get to buy 4 with the OBS instead of only 2.
it would move the connector out from under my s468

Only downside I see is dealing with the plugs coming loose.
Which can be fixed in a few ways. The "50 cent mod" (I think that's what it's called) or the wedges.

I'm doing this on my 97 at the end of the month. Another reason for doing this is the pins inside the plug for glow plugs are bigger on sd harness. Early obs had issues burning up plugs cuz too small pins. I just ordered new everything plus sd pigtails from riffraff. Gonna slice new plugs into stock harness.
