My NA's blown a head gasket and I'm currently putting the motor from my EF into it, with the 3spd unfortunately.

I'll be using the BBM manifold as all the belt driven accessories are stuffed on the NA, and I don't have an XH tensioner so I can't run the log with the EF accessories. And i want to do it this way to save money as the car is only needed untl the XR8 is back on it's feet.

The gas setup on the NA (log manifold) is Elko (impco style setup) and the EF system for the BBm is the common/landy omvl setup with the hidden mixer. Will I just need to swap the converter and mixer from the EF into the NA or will I have to get other things form it like the gas computer and other things?

I'll be throwing the EF motor in tomorrow so any help would save me a s**t of stress.

Is is possible to use the log manifold with the EF/EL serp setup.

On the EF there are three spacers that sit between the A/C comp and the block. The idea, is to cut these in half, and use them to space out the EF/EL comp from the EA-ED A/C bracket. You will then need to work out the right length belt.
