8th Letter of VIN E = SOHC X = OHV
 






lol ya i didnt even think to check the intake manifold. i noticed the 4.0 when i bought it but didnt even notice the SOHV.
 












that engine is backwards,, :D:D:D

Its not backwards,:confused: My engine is the same, just the brake booster/ master cyl and fuse box is on the other side:D

Good obs Corkey, Happy fathers day.

ya mine is the other way too with the fusebox n master cylinder on the otherside. y is yours the otherway. is it just a model year difference or something
 






his is a right side drive.. thus his fuses, brake booster locations are all reversed
 






Yep, that's right. We drive on the wrong side of the road here in Australia so I have the right hand drive Explorer Export. The heater hoses even run across the back of the engine to get to where they are supposed to be. But they come with Floor shift transmission shifter so that's a bonus.

First I want to welcome you to the Forum:dpchug:

Believe it or not this great Forum, (Started by a great person in the state of Arizona), Now has members from ALL OVER the world.:usa: :uk: :ca: :australia

Sedition, Who I have seen lots of great posts from:thumbsup:, Was the person who posted the photo. He is from Australia :australia and things are a little different there as well as the UK.

Corky (another great poster:thumbsup:) caught the different photo and was joking with him. I also caught that and was joking with Corkey.

And the Great Blee1099 :salute: spelled it out. It is a right side drive, but the engine is the same.

Anyway thanks for letting me have some fun with this.

You guys also drive upside down.

Just FYI its SOHC (single overhead cam) not SOHV.
