Jaguar Rear Diff Question

I know this is going to sound weird but I had a question. About a year ago I was driving home and the rear end in my Jag locked up solid. After leaving most of my rear tires in front of the Valencia Mall on a 100 degree day I had the car flat bedded home. I found another complete rear and had the pumpkin removed, cleaned and refilled with synthetic oil and installed in my Jag. I started thinking I know you guys will cut down a rear end to get them to work in certain applications but could you cut down say a Ford rear end to the point it would fit into a Jag setup? This would also include mounting the disc brakes up by the pumpkin as well. I don't need to now but in the future it my be an option if it blows again.

Regards
Mark

Yes you can have a 9" Ford cut for the Jag. Jaguars used to use Dana 60 centersections. I don't know what yours has, but the old Dana's were plenty strong.

Thanks for the reply, Yeah mine is a Dana if just cost me a ton of money to replace the last one. It still bothers me why it went ballistic like it did. I have a feeling one of the seals failed and I was running a dry diff.

The other reason I was considering a Ford diff is parts and repair. With the Jag Diff you need a case cracking tool to open it and thats no cheap tool.

Hopefully I'll never need to replace it again anyway

Regards
Mark

Actually Jaguar did not have a Dana 60. It was a Dana 44. Te early cats used a Dana 44 and it is considered troublesum. The later cars used a Salsbury diff. You can tell them apart easily. If the case has a drain plug it's a Dana. If it doesnt hava a drain plug it's a Salsbury. The Dana uses 4 bolts to attach the output bearing cover and the Salsbury has 5 bolts. The interesting part is that the salsbury uses a Dana 44 gear set. The Dana 44 is very common in Jeeps and relatively strong. The ring gear is 8.5" in diameter. I am putting Jaguar Salisbury IRS from an '82 Jag XJ-6 in my Willys pick-up along with the front suspension from the same car.
