hi

just a quick question, will ba model sedan fuel lines fit or bolt in a e series sedan or can they be made to fit with minimum work.

how close are ba sedan fuel lines to e series sedan fuel lines if not 100% same.

reason for asking is the ford dealer have ba lines but e series are nla.

any help would be good

thanks

wouldn't think it would be that hard to make Ba lines fit. i wouldn't have a clue how close to the same they are as ive never had them out of a car and side by side
Ba fuel lines are 5/16 diameter for the supply and return i imagine E series was the same

e series are 5/16 too and from photos from recency park ford dealer they look close but cant go by pictures

what would yous do out of getting ba lines and modifying them to just push hose on and clamp and doing small mods if needed to fit a e series and looking for eb/ed lines, might still have to look for tank to engine line though

ive always seen them under the car about half way along, but that you already knew. i cant see any reason that it couldn't be put in the engine bay, other than finding a nice open space in the engine bay that would be easy to access, I'd personally leave it under the car where its not so bad to change
