Nope, early covers are for std rotation pumps. You need to get one for EB-AU. Or get the Explorer type from Ford racing. I think KC make after market ones too.
BTW F-series or '88-'93 mustang covers are not correct either.

Just spoke to michelle at race parts and got a price of 275 for a genuine ford timing cover,that she took out of a kit.should be here thursday.By the way i wouldnt buy an aftermarket kilkenny castings unit because the two i looked at were dodgy because they both had holes machined in them for the front seal off centre which would cause leaking and premature wear on the balancer. :lol:
