Spend an extra $30-$40 at a wreckers and get the AU bellhousing and bolts. The wrecker I bought my AU engine from had plenty of AU bellhousings as he was fitting AU autos to EF/EL and retaining the older bellhousings from the EF/EL. If you change them over, you will have to remove the torque converter. I fitted a new front seal and had to add about 4 litres of trans fluid to replace the old stuff that came out of the torque converter.

See this thread for more info. ford-4l-and-6-cylinder-f1/just-starting-au-in-ef-conversion-t81875.html
