A wire harness slipped down onto the exhaust manifold while I was driving. I'd like to replace this diode if I can, along with the wire. Any idea where I can buy it? Thanks.

yo,
Electrical system concerns that are due to diode failure may be serviced with an approved Ford service diode. Some electrical diodes used in early production vehicles are color coded for the purpose of size identification while others are stamped with a manufacture number. All Ford service diodes and current production diodes are identified by manufacture number.
ACTION If service is required, refer to the appropriate model/year Electrical and Vacuum Troubleshooting Manual (EVTM) to determine the size and location of the diode(s). Refer to the following Electrical Diode Application Chart for the correct service part number.

E8DZ-10C912-B Diode - 6.0 Amp - 400V

These diodes were used as late as 97 in almost All Ford cars & trucks
Probably in later years too

Check NAPA
Radio Shack

for example

for da 1 amp diode
search for 1N4005

Here is Philips Data Sheet forthe 1N4005

yo,
my PC froze while CC decided it will take 2 mins to open the Radio Shack site;
1N4004 Micro 1-Amp Rectifier Diode
$1.19 - Radio Shack http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2036270&CAWELAID=107599298

1N4003 Micro 1-Amp Diode - $1.19 -http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2036269
Some comments on this diode;
"Used 2 diodes wired parallel so that the surge protection would be a safe 30 amps. The diodes were used on an ignition supply cable to 3 headlight door relays. Took me about an hour to solder in and fabricate a harness but wow! Does it work great! You cannot buy a harness anymore for a 68 camaro headlight doors! Thanks Radio Shack!" by Jim the Tech
