Need part number -- nylon Fuel line from tank to steel lines
#11

Do those of you who use high psi fuel injection rubber hose deal with any fuel vapor odors? Especially if the car is parked in garage? I was going to use -4 aero quip push on hose since they fit the dorman ends up until I heard many a complaint about the ethanol mixed fuel odor coming right through the hose wall. I will probably order some nylon parts from fuelsender.com.

Ford never stocked complete fuel hose assemblies - only ends, couplers and bulk hose.
-not true. [/b]
I'm talking about SVOs here. [/b]
I have a brand new Ford fuel line assembly from tank to engine. They did sell them.

Is this information still accurate? I am fabricating any hoses I need from the hard lines to the fuel rail? I somehow managed to source the soft hoses from the hard lines to the tank a couple of years ago but I'll be damned if I remember where.

Wellll.......it probably doesn't matter whether those part numbers are accurate or not, Andy ~ since it's extremely unlikely that ANY of 'em are still available. The only source that I can POSSIBLY imagine for those parts would be some kinda NOS supplier that has 'em squirreled away for huge profits. 

Instead, I suggest making new lines from scratch, using Nylon tubing and components like those depicted on THIS page. OTOH, if you're building some kinda whatup gee-whiz race car that requires larger lines, you might also consider stainless hard line and AN fittings.  <shrug>

You'll have to verify hose size but I got the SS braided lines from an SN95 to go from the tank fittings to the chassis lines.

Not building anything insane, but I did put in a Walboro pump, new sending unit/filter, pressure regulator and  stainless hardlines. The last because whoever welded in the subframe rails under this car positioned the factory lines directly under a jacking point, which did not end well for the factory lines. I figured whats 20 bucks more for stainless and a little piece of mind. I can do what I want to the motor and not have to worry about the fuel system. The amount of pressure I have from the pump can easily be handled by factory hoses and that pressure is more than enough for any plans I may have for the motor. My car will be far from a sleeper for any that know what they are looking at but I like to keep things subtle. That nylon hose should help with that. Thanks

Good call man. SN95 should have the same fittings assuming the line is the same size.

Keep in mind that - IF you terminate(d) those hard or braid-covered stainless lines/hoses with OEM "Spring-Lock" connectors (in order to couple with the factory fuel rail) - the male ends of those connectors both neck down to 3/16 ID. <eek> This is b/c they have to accommodate the ID of their machined double o-ring grooves.

Most folks don't seem to have a prob forcing a sufficient volume of 40-ish psi fuel past those arguably restrictive bore sizes at "usual" power levels. BUT......I can foresee a possible issue if E85 (or any alky-based fuel) were used with, say, 20 psi or greater boost. Just sayin'.......  <shrug>
