I’m going to try to replace all the hoses connected to the fuel tank in an effort to get rid of the fuel smell when I fill the car up. The smell stays bad until I’m somewhere about halfway empty, then then smell is just noticeable instead of overpowering.
Would anyone happen to know the sizes of the hoses I need? JDHT shows that two of the three hoses are available for purchase, I just don’t know if I’m buying a small section of a straight hose, which I’d buy at an auto parts store, or if the hoses have any bends.
- EBC11357 - NLA
- EBC4642 - available
- EBC52021 - available
- (already ordered the gaiter CBC87033 and the o-ring CAC7509)
Just trying to have the necessary hose sizes available instead of starting the project and running around to the shops. I’m looking to follow advice here and purchase Gates Barricade hoses, which is available near me, just not conveniently near enough.
UPDATE: After removing the black rear panel in the trunk, revealing the fuel tank, it does not seem to look like what JDHT and eBay show as a 1995-1996 XJS, instead, it looks like an XJ6 fuel tank! The evaporative loss flange for an XJS should be NNA5955AA, what I have is NNA5954BA
