I'm assembling mine E3D now, from what i have seen, it can be mounted with no problem, don't know how easy it would be to remove it, but it goes through if you align the fan parallel to the rods.
Thank you for the wonderful work! I have printed out the carriage and would like to use the extruder files with an E3D hotend. Is this possible? And if so, how would I connect the E3D to the rest of the assembly? Thanks for any help you can provide on this :)

The Linear bearings slide in and secure with a zip tie
It has a belt adjuster on one side of the belt clamps - see photos
The Extruder is based on Greg's excellent design, with a few mods and the extensions allow it to fit on the Quick-Fit X Carriage.
You need two x M4 (13mm) 624 bearings for the Quick-Fit Lever.
It also has a fan mount on one side.
It's designed to be expandable (easily made wider) by adding spacers between the two halves - without taking off the printer. - just in-case you ever need more room to fit triple extruders !
