E-Series help!

Hello all

I am new to Fords and have just bought a 1990 EA falcon. I was hoping some of you could help me with a few Questions i need answering.

# Can i fit a EB /ED Boot garnish to a EA?
# What Model wheels are compatable with E-series?
# Can you upgrade to Fairmont/Fairlane/S-pack instrement pannels easily?

Just wanted to customise the beast a bit but not sure what will fit from other models. Never seen an EA with boot garnish though so i am guessing thats not possable..

Regards ,
Possco

Re: E-Series help!

G'day mate,

EB/ED garnish is not too difficult, just requires a little rewiring due to the different reverse light position. Of course you'll need the tail lights as well.

All E Series wheels are interchangable (and later X Series wheels will fit) plus there's a reasonable number of aftermarket options.

The Fairlane instrument cluster is a bit if a job to install because of the door-open indicator etc, but installing S/Fairmont dials is not hard. You'd need to run one cable for the oil pressure gauge, or something like that. Plenty of info on the forums.

Yep, there is a pink wire located near the brake fluid reservoir that runs from the coil. All you need to do is run another wire from this into the back of the dash. Easy as pie.

Re: E-Series help!

Im pretty sure you cant put an EB/ED boot garnish on an EA boot, because of it having a different shape. I think youll need an EB/ED boot to go with it.

Re: E-Series help!

G'day Possco

If your car is a four speed auto and you buy a Fairmont/S pack cluster make sure it's one that has the 'power' indicator light.
You'll need to buy the oil gauge sensor as well.. It's a direct replacement for the switch to get the gauge working correctly.

A coolant level sensor can be added as well if you have a GL.. A useful addition considering possible head problems.

New clips to plug additional wiring (tacho and coolant sensor) into the instrument cluster sockets are available..
The part number is..
(AMP Product) Pt. No. AMP170291

Cheers
Jim

Re: E-Series help!

I put the EB garnish on my EA as well. Its not really hard at all. If you are going to used the EA boot lid, you need to remove part of the reverse light globe holders and find another way to secure the bulbs. If you don't secure them, they will probably touch the plastic and melt it.
