Just the LSD centre or the complete diff disc to disc? I dont see why it shouldnt, pretty sure they are all the same.

If its the complete diff pull the cover off the back of the housing and have a look at the ring gear/crownwheel. It should have the ratio stamped on there somewhere along with a few other numbers etc.

EB series 1 were usually 3.27:1.
You can fit the EB diff in wholus-bolus, but you'll need to make spacers to fit the rear lower arms into the diff.
I did this with puting in an EBII diff into my EA.
