but if ur swapping the whole assembely from EB to EL then you "should" be fine but not 100%...
yes, there is a different flywheel on ea's and eb's. ea's i believe take an 8" clutch (
, and what i have on my car) and eb's 9", but you can fit a 9.5" clutch). i am getting an XR6T flywheel and clutch, 10.5". should sort out my flat shifting problems at 5800rpm... :D

The main thing I want from the diff on my EB is the center since I had new bearings put in and slightly changed the ratio. (Speaking of which, will I find the gear thingy for my speedo in the top of my gearbox for my speedo??)
Finally re: the flywheel; pretty sure I should be ok with that then since I've got a feeling i've got a lightened flywheel to suit the XR6T and slightly larger clutch (since fords good ol' pedal box doesnt like heavy clutches)
I think the thinkness of the trailing arms are different in eb's and el's... not 100% sure... sorry... unfortunately you would need to swap more than the axles over for the handbrake setup to swap over...
you could swap over the gears from your eb diff. they will fit straight in. i would suggest getting this done by a professional, as you will want the gears to mark up correctly or you will have a noisey diff, and most likely break it prematurely. the speedo transducer connected to the gearbox. you can undo it and fit it to the el once you have changed everything over.
i also believe that some bellhousing modification will need to be done to fit the BA flywheel. i am getting mine done for me. i dont want the hassle.
