If your old lenses for your FE were AI lenses, or were modified as such, they'll work.
Back in the day (don't you hate it when some old geezer starts that way!) the connection between Nikon Lenses and the meters in prisms on the Nikon F, was achieved via a little metal device that looked like cat ears, mounted on the back of each lens. It engaged with a pin/lever that stuck down and connected the lens and prism together. By the time the FE bodies appeared, new lenses now "automatically indexed" or AId to communicate what the f/stop was to the meter. So if you bought the lenses concurrently with the FE, they are probably AI lenses. If they were modified, either by Nikon by replacing some parts or by a quick machine shop fix, they would probably retain the "ears" so they were backward usable with an older Nikon F. I believe the ears on the AI lenses have small holes in them and the older ones did not.
Two ways to spot an AI lens:
-- Non AI lenses have only one aperture scale ring on the lens. -- AI lenses have two of them -- one larger type and another in much smaller type closest to where the lens connects to the camera body.
There are several web sites that try to explain how to identify an older lens that has been "AI'd", but frankly, I have had difficulty figuring them out.
BTW -- Nikon is virtually no use in identifying lenses by serial number because (a) they don't usually answer and (b) if the lens was modified by a machine shop hacker, Nikon would not know anyhow!
Again -- two sets of f/stop numbers -- one larger and the other smaller and closest to the base of the lens? It's an AI lens.
