The high pressure side should still be available new, I know you can get the EB (thru to EL should be the same?) high pressure one from Repco. The low pressure side, not available for an EB v8, either thru repco or Ford it seems. I contacted Pirtek about remaking the rubber part of mine, was quoted about $80 over the phone.

Cheers

thanks, will check with them tomorro. i know the low pressure side is no longer available through ford, tried a few months ago. pirtek told me that they couldnt make the low pressure hose, they didnt mould hoses to shape. so i have just used normal low pressure oil hose for that and it has been working well since, but now the rest of the hoses are showing their age.

On the EB the hose is a combo metal pipe molded to shape & a rubber hose that is crimp fit to the metal part. I was advised they can crimp a new rubber hose onto the original, returning it to working order. They advised they wouldn't make a whole new hose & pipe assembly, just fix mine. Which as long as it works (I don't see why not) I have no drama's with.

However I have not taken it to them yet, probably do that sometime this week, on a day off work.
