Quick connect fuel line ????

Can the QCF with the inner springs be substituted for the QCf with the clips?

If the fittings are the same size [meaning they accept the same size line] then it shouldn't be a problem.

Did you pull out the seals or the fingered retaining clips? The clips can be replaced.

Buy/use these:

They release the clips shown above. Spray out the connection with brake clean, blow it out with compressed air, shoot in some spray lube/penetrant and they'll come apart with much less effort.

With much cursing and frustration. Also, any auto parts store should have a Ford 'quick' disconnect tool. They're small and the bane of my existence. Took me like two hours of yelling at my truck to get them off. Good luck.

I pulled out everything the clip,the seal and the line that was rusted inside(the reason for the intense pulling. i want to just scrap the original lines and use the qcf with the clips along with some nylon line.

But now that i think about it maybe i can get the old line remove i could just buy new clips,where do you get these clips? Dorman?
Do they sell the inner seal assembly as well? Are the fingererd clips remove just by prying them out with a screwdriver?

OEM FORD numbers are E9UZ-9B307-A & E9UZ-9B307-B. Dorman part numbers are 5/16" (800-007) & 3/8" (800-008) fuel lines. The kit containing both sizes is 800-017. IDK about the o-ring seals. Just pry them out & snap them back into place.

Dorman lists 800-013 2 Each - 5/16" and 3/8" Fuel Line Viton O-Rings but I cannot confirm this is for these lines.

Howdy,

I am doing a frame swap with a 64 F100/600 body to a 94 F350 frame. I am having some slight issues with integrating systems and hope you guys in this forum can help. Here is my Build link http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/11...storation.html

I know this a very very open ended question but what will i need to do to make my 94's fuel system (tanks and lines) work with a mechanical fuel pump on a 390. It is an area of my build that i have completely overlooked and i know almost nothing about. I am hoping that someone will have an easy answer. All advice appreciated!

Thanks.

Are you going to do a single or dual tank? Single tank should only require a low pressure lift pump (if any at all) like the 91 & older models that used the frame rail mounted high pressure pump. I mean, your old 64 didn't use a tank pump at all. The 390 doesn't know what kind of tank it's sucking fuel from. Pull the pump/sender, remove the pump module, extend the pick-up tube to the proper length, block off the existing return line port and see if it doesn't satisfy the supply needs. Put an old-school filter screen on the new pickup tube!

Howdy,

So the 91 and older tanks and pumps are different? I would like to have the largest fuel capacity as possible so keeping the dual tanks would be preferred. My 64 had 3 tanks with a manual valve selector under the seat. I would be just fine with having to manually select which tank i am sucking from and which tank the gauge is showing. I parted out an 85 F250 last summer that had dual tanks and i still have them along with all the fuel lines and anything that i thought would have been of use this summer with my current build. My 64 also had an inline fuel pump that was mounted on the frame under the rear of the cab. I have not done any research on that pump yet to see what it is. If the 85's tanks have the "lifting" pumps, could it be as simple as replacing my current ones with those? what would need to be done with the return lines then if i wanted to keep dual tanks? what would need to happen with wiring so far as power to the lifting pumps if i am only "pulling" from one at a time?

Thanks
