My EB decided to do a head gasket. So i wanted to know a few things.

to convert it to serpentine what do i need to do exactly. but i'm keeping the log manifold

i'm assuming :
EF/L Waterpump
EF/L Alternator with EB plug cut off and EF/L plug added on
EF/L Harmonic balancer
EF/L P-steer pump
XH ute belt tensioner and belt
The bolt and brackets

Can i use the EB A/C compressor and leave it as it is?

Also do i use a AU MLS head gasket and the bolts? Seeings as they are better

cheers

EF/L Waterpump....(YES)
EF/L Alternator with EB plug cut off and EF/L plug added on (yes, unless you already have the mitsubishi alternator? same plug as ef, dont forget to get the mounting bracket aswell)
EF/L Harmonic balancer (yes, but now your timing mark will be off, unless you re mark the ef balancer or fit the ef timing cover..
EF/L P-steer pump (yes)
XH ute belt tensioner and belt (yes)
The bolt and brackets
Can i use the EB A/C compressor and leave it as it is? (no! you need the ef/el ac compressor and because your keeping the log manifold you need to mount the ef ac compressor to the ea/ed ac bracket
