Obviously you need to modify it a little. Put a thread onto the EB stalk and it shall be sweet Im guessing.

Yes it should fit. I changed a EA for an EL tbar some time back, the thread is the same, the only mod I had to make was to change the pushrod inside, as I think the EA one was too long. Rather than butcher the EA pushrod I made my own.

Dead right Madmax only the rod is to short. I did the same and made a longer one, it only needs to be about 6-8 mm longer from memory. Works like a charm just screw it on till it works as you would like and lock it off. :P :P

EF/EL shifter stalk is about 15mm shorter, (pushrod is EXACTLY the same length) so to fit to an EA-ED you need to shorten the stalk by 15mm, and thread the stalk 15mm further down OR extend the rod by 15mm BUT you will find the EF/EL shifter handle is sitting VERY high.

I got an EF shifter AND stalk/gate assembly for $25 no need to stuff around cutting+ threading or lengthening, i just have to be bothered getting under the car to install it all.

Thanks, I wasn't sure which way, as It was quite a few years ago.
