Re: Help

There's one on the front of the head.. They are design approval codes.. like 87DA, 94DA, etc..

Someone else will know more..

EA is 87DA and not sure when everything changed.. I'm assuming 94DA or whatever will be EF..

Should be one on lots of the parts..

Dan..

yes definetly 4.0L EB, the crank will also have 91 DA on it. but you should try and get a 94DA EF crank as these were fully counter weighted (12) will run smoother and is better for balancing.
