So pretty much its safe to order a EF-EL or even AU Engine as the fly wheel issue shall be fine

Only major thing would be AU engine bell housing pattern but no big deal



i'll try to check tomorrow with the EA flywheel & AU engine .... if i remeber & find the EA flywheel :lol: :lol: :roll:


You are a bloody Legend!!!


If your findings come out well in my favor i shall definitely purchase an AU / EF /EL XR engine

Darn but my next question is do the bolt holes the 4 for the converter line up ? if each fly wheels put up to each other

if that made sense if so just use whichever flywheel fits on the EF- AU engine the one that comes with it and use that to the converter of the 3sp if that makes sense?

Appreciate the help alot seems as if no one else has this stuff laying around hah starting to ger rare

we are talking about the MANUAL flywheels NOT the auto ones?

ok .... your talkin auto boxes . . . . with the changeover of the auto in yellow peril ... i don't know if they changed the converter/flex plate or not. was told that the snout was differant with the 4sp torque converters.
