its from an el or xh ..

the number= the year of manufacture
eg 91= 1991, 95= 1995...


that would explain why a 3.9litre clutch was too small, cause I have a 4 litre flywheel. So my car is a 1991 EB1 with 95 model 4 litre block/flywheel and clutch ,3.9litre head and CFI.
What a bitser !!!!!!
goes good anyway...the thing I dont understand is that the engine serial number is the same as the ID plate chassis number, how is this possible?............just checked again and the engine serial numbers are not evenly stamped or in a straight line, sound suspect? or are you allowed to restamp an engine...I'm thinking not but vicroads has inspected and given the green light.


Where is the engine number stamped?????....EA to ED was stamped near water pump.....EF onwards..stamped on lower right of engine block at the rear.
They were a bit up & down with the stamping, till they went to the dot-matrix ( very hard to read ).

3.45s are good if you do heaps of hwy driving, 3.7's aregood but hard to find and/or expensive, 3.89's will certainly wake it up if you don't do the hwy all the time :D

The Fairlane by Tickford came with a 195kw 5.0 litre so surely there was something else in the range as well :roll:
