Hey guys,

first post here just got a quick question I'm looking at replacing the belts on my other car, the problem I have is when I bought the vehicle I was told it had a EB engine put in. So I am not sure if it is a stock EA or EB series I or II. On the top it says "4.0 OHC" and just under that is has a yellow marking.

Any help would be great!

Link below on photobucket are of the engine bay.

Centre-point injection was only available on EA series 1,2 and EB series 1 Falcons, these were only ever fitted to the 3.2l,3.9l EA engines and the 3.9l engine on the EB series 1. All series 2 EB falcons received the 4l MPI OHC engine.


Hopefully if it is a 4l EB MPI engine they either swapped over the chopper disk or re-installed the CPI dizzy..... Most long motors without inlet manifolds and accessories etc still generally have the dizzy left in.............

Thanks guys for the replies. So I was looking at belts today at Supercheap and they have different types of belts for each different type of engine. So engine model would suit the belts, e.g. EA EB EBII....

Looks to have an EB engine fitted to an EA with CFI, if they list belts for each type of engine, they are morons, they are all the same, so just ask for any. lol
