1980 EA81 Wagon
The chart above is WRONG according to my 1980 FSM. That chart up there says the G in "f-a-g" is an indicator of the transmission, but it's actually an indicator of the plant of origin. There is also a G in the example in my FSM...
Now - cross-refenceing that information with the models availible in 1980, the only EA81 based wagon that year was a GL Automatic, so now you have and engine from a:
1980 EA81 Wagon GL Automatic.
Which, BTW, means you have the small valve heads. The intake valves got bigger on all EA81's from 83-89, yeilding a bit more HP.
