Those orange turbo water hoses

Ok, got to the point where I can see both of those (especially the one on the bottom) little orange water hoses that go to the turbo. Next question is the obvious.....are they still available from Ford and if not, where can I get them. I got one that doesn't look too swift and I'd like to replace it from the top rather than on my back.
Thanks,
Gary Schweikert

Gary, The one on top is supply and the bottom is return. I don't remember if they are the same or not for an IHI. The part number for the top (supply) is E7SZ-8A506-A. I got a couple 3-4 years ago from a Ford Dealer.

I bought silicone hose from www.hosetechniques.com . Min. order is 6 feet, at about $3 a foot. I now have enough silicone hose to last me for 50 years.

Those hoses from Ford cost $8.++ a few years ago, and they are less than 3" long!!!

I stopped into autozone looking for some tubing. Instead I used some gas line (7/16 I think)and have had no problems yet. The best part is that the guy didn't charge me for it because it was scrap. Ty

Standard rubber gas line may not hold up for a real long time due to the high temps where those hoses are exposed to, especially the top one. If using rubber hose, I would change them out every year or so. Ford used silicone hoses in this application due to the high temps the hoses see.

Jeff, What size hose did you order? Is it 5/16"? Would you want to sell a foot from your surplus? [Image: smile.gif]

Pete, my local dealership said they are obsolete.. Is that a P/N for something else that works just as good?
