Fuel Filter

Hey i was wondering where the fuel filter is in the EL? I bought the fuel filter from repco and i couldnt find it in the engine bay! And how do you change it? Do you just remove the two hoses (if their are any) connected to the fuel filter and replace it with the new one? Does removing the fuel hoses make fuel come out? and how do i stop this?

thanks

Never done it on a ford, on my friends v8 commode however, i have, and its under pressure, fuel pissed out everywhere and all over me. And the dropkick was smoking to.

I presume it will be under pressure too. better some how reduce the pressure, dont ask me how

Well I went to remove my Fuel Filter and discovered the bracket that secures it was rivetted on! Is this normal??

To depressurise you remove the fuel pump relay and start the car, and let it run till it stops.

If its in the same position as EA-EDs then it'll will be a pain in the ass to remove.....(the relay that is)

Say, cant you do the same thing by screwing on a hose to the Schrader valve that is connected to the fuel rail around the intake manifold?

Hmm; in the spirit of the oil filter comparison I might cut a few used fuel filters apart as well. Anyone using a racing fuel filter? They exist but Ford don't seem to have one in their current Ford Racing/SVO catalogue.

My mechanic and the one before that - both old guys who specialised in Fords were of the opinion that the EFI XF Falcon fuel filter flowed better than the newer types and that's what my car is using.
