remove the black splash cover off the front and see if you have a bid T like a tickford t without the wings itll be in the centre of the head

I have an EF XR6 (Fairmont Ghia) and the rocker cover is a darker shade of red than the one shown above.Just make sure the T is there at the front of the head under the belt guard.You will know in 30 seconds as you only have to undo one nut by the Thermostat housing and lift the power steer filler out.
