Hi guys,
This May be my first post its been that long i cant remember!
I have pulled out my engine which will be going in for a full rebuild very soon, and i wanted to know if anyone could tell me what this sticker on the back of the motor means?
It reads 3.9 MP AUTO, but my falcon is an EB2 xr6 manual :roll: It has re rocker cover and big "T" printed on the front of the block...Just wanted to understand the meaning of this sticker...be it a replacement block or anything of that nature maybe? Thanks for any help.
Cheers
Daniel

thats just the rear welsh plug label..
they are the same part used from the ea 3.9.. that sticker is there from factory..
its just a carry over label..
you will find there are a few parts from eb/ed 4.0l that have ea/3.9 part numbers as they are the same part..

That sounds logical enough, thanks 4 that. I got a bit sketchy when I came across it, begun to think the block had been replaced with an ea block lol tricky part now... Taking off acc off the motor, blasted log manifold :)
