The newer one in the first pic is an EA is it not. The other one is the latter version from EB onward.

Yep the one on the left is a 3 bolt EA setup as mentioned. Clutch plate is 9.5" as opposed to the 6 bolter setup which is 10" IIRC. Check your transmission as well - mark the input shaft and the cover tube and mark the output shaft the same - select 1st gear and rotate the output shaft one revolution - if the input shaft spins 3¼ turns, it's an EBII onwards box, if 3½ turns, it's an EA-EBI box or earlier. Otherwise, just visually it's hard to spot any difference. Just because they say it's out of an EB falcon, doesn't mean a replacement or conversion has not been installed from another model.
And as for the exchange kit, yeah, they need a floggin - you'll find the 3 bolt kit is cheaper than the 6 bolt one, so definitely get the right one, particularly if they charged you for it.
