I couldn't take the thought of this whole thread having pictures of just backwards IFS, so here are a couple pics of it flipped.

It isn't in the pictures but I test fit the steering rack and the shaft is placed in a very ideal spot, just inboard of frame rail.

Don't. Go with MII from TCI.

Are you considering welding in rather than a soft mount? Given the amount of frame modification it may be preferable. I am a strong proponent of installing the Jag in the F-1's in particular, however, I think that the width of the 460 is going to create significant problems unless you mount the engine particularly high for steering and exhaust. My setup is a 383, a stroked SBC which is a fairly narrow engine. I wanted mine centered in the rails to use a mechanical fan which made fitup of steering and exhaust tighter than others that have offset the engine and limited exhaust options. If you were doing an earlier Jag, I would suggest the XJ12 springs given the added weight of the 460. I am unsure if the 12 cylinder engine was fitted into the suspension that you have. I seem to remember that the 12 cylinder stayed with the earlier IFS.
Whatever you decide the best of luck and keep us informed. (God hates a coward!)

Jag IFS

Jag was the hot lick in early '80s. Then simple to install MII took over. Stick with hugger headers. Thumbs up on the bladed fan, Flexalite stainless flat tip, not pointed, deep pitch, 5 blade.

I am doing the jag install on by 51 F-1 using a 86 model. It is real straight forward. Like Willard said fitting that Big Boy 460 could have some issues with clearances. But if there is a will there is a way. I think if you can mock up with front end and motor and steering, which would help you to see if this is the way you want to go. I have seen some that have cut off the trailing arms,I am not a fan of that,but it has been done.If you would like a few pics of my frame and mounting let me know I can shoot some to you.
Good Luck you will make it happen! Happy Trails

That little rag top is sweet. I don't see a '49 of any type though. Bid ~
