Hey guys I'm not a mechanic I just like working on my own cars and learning more about the E series Ford's.
I have a EF that has been converted to a manual that I am wanting to convert back to an Automatic.
Do I only need to swap over the gearboxes/transmissions?

Thanks

You will also need to swap the ECU and wiring harness. Also the tailshaft and perhaps the differential too (if the latter was also changed with the original conversion). Financially you would be betters off elling it and buying an automatic.

What's the code number on the ECU (Catch Code) so we can see if it a manual or auto one? The code is on the sticker that faces the guard panel where the harness plugs in so you have to take the retaining clamp off the ECU and turn the ECU around to see the code.
Compare it to this list:
