no difference, they are the same gear box.
when fitting the gearbox are you leaving the torque converter in the box or are you trying to fit the box with torque converter bolted to the engine??

also is / or was the eb engine auto or manual? as if it was a manual you have to remove the spigot bearing from the crank..

then it's as per moi 1st answer - converter must be lined up properly with the front pump in gearbox. priick of a job with these fords coz of the solid flex plate [linning up converter bolt holes], i cheated & paid someone else to fit the box :mrgreen:
