quick change rear

when using a quick change rear with a humped model A or T spring it looks best to center the rear and have the drive shaft off set. I haven't checked out the Jag XJ Irs but I think the pumpkin is centered, I've got one on a pallet ready for a T bucket.

center pumpkin

If the pumpkin is centered then your drive shaft will be offset. When I first looked at the new in 03 Ford GT the rear center section is to the rear of the perpendicular center line of the wheels. the rear half-shafts just didn't look right. When building new floor pans you have to check for actual drive shaft clearance not just center the hump in the floor.

BigMo Exactly....nothing came stock centered. When i build one custom i will center the pinion w the car center line, cut axle tubes/weld bearing ends, and get axles made to on my Coupe and many other cars i have built for folks

BigMo Its not a show stopper, prob got the rear with an existing offset and then installed it with the hubs/axle flanges lined up equal under the car.

Is an offset rear end normal ?

My new 31 Model A Tudor has a Ford 9Ē rear but I noticed itís not centered between the 2 tires. Itís offset about 2 inches. Is this unusual ,is there a reason , or did previous owner mess up ?
