Fuel line sizes for 6030 tractors

Hi have a 6430p that requires new pipes to replace the braided ones , would someone be able to tell me the correct size so I can buy from our local motor factor.
I know it’s mainly one size but there seems to be a short length coming from the secondary filter housing, maybe a drain, that seems to be a little smaller?
Many thanks in advance.

Now Then..
Most of the hose is 5/16 (L65382). The short one at the filter is 1/4 (L65383)
I use a JD supplied hose which is 7.8mm (L204242) and find it easier to fit that the 7.5mm L65382.
The new hose needs new spring clips (L211138) as the little red ones are too small. Spring clips are better than jubilee type for this job..

When you do it, as said do them all, the braided jd stuff is rubbish, and when you have the floor up in the corner by the door, pull the fitting out of the too of the tank as there should be a stainless gauze filter on the bottom that’ll want cleaning, and if the plastic suction pipe it fits over has a square end cut on it, slice it to a taper, we had one once that was square cut and when the filter got dirty it sucked up tight to it.
