yes you can but you will have to change all the other accesories. a/con, w/pump pulley and get a tensioner from an ef/l and the balancer

Serpentine... not turpentine :)

Pretty sure this one has been done many a time. By the sounds of it, you've already ditched the clutch fan??

Just change the pulley on the alternator and it will fit the 3 belt setup.

Much easier job.

If not you need to run all the other accessories and buy a XH tensioner if you are still running the BBM.

You need a rattle gun. I got mine from the wrecker and he was like you just change the pulley. 2 bent allen keys later I took it back and got them to do it. Took them 2 seconds.

Maybe run down to a mechanic. They wouldnt charge you I wouldnt think.

Doesn't the ECU run the show for the EF alternator?
If you still have a log inlet manifold on the EB, the EF/EL fan belt set up won't fit, you'll need the belt set up from an XH ute.
