I have read all the sticky's on the forum for fuel leaks and they have been very helpful. My leak appears to be coming from the lower hose that goes from the bottom of the fuel bowl filter housing out to the fuel pump lower fitting on the fuel bowl side. At least that is where I can see it dripping from.
I have a couple questions I am hoping you can help me out on. I am looking at replacing the hoses from Diesel O Rings and also replacing the Fuel Bowl assembly as well mainly due to my wiring harness on it being frayed and clips broken off and brittle. Diesel O Rings is showing a replacement fuel bowl assembly for $354.67 for 94.5-97
Complete Fuel Bowl Assembly 1994-5 - 1997
I found the same Motorcraft one on e-bay for $248.99 FG-1054
Motorcraft FG 1054 Fuel Filter F6TZ 9155 AB | eBay
but their applications only show for a 1996. Are they not one and the same? O'Reilly Auto Parts is showing the same for theirs as well for 1996 only.
So my questions are:
1. Will I be safe ordering the ebay one for $100.00 cheaper do they not all fit the same 1994.5-1997? It looks the same to me or should I just go with the one off of Diesel O Rings site even though it is $100.00 more?
2. I have seen some that say to do an e-swap. I am not sure what that all entails and how hard that is to do or how costly.
Any thoughts and recommendations? I am not really sure which direction to go....Thanks!
