I don't think I would try to run a IRS Jag with a I beam or tube axle front. Although it was done it the 70's, I don't think it would handle too good. A Ford 9" or 8.8" would be a better choice IMHO. IFS and IRS look funky on fenderless cars.

Still putting the "horse" together. Modified the supercharger to bolt down on the adapters. Re-timed the cams for a more boost friendly 110 ICL & 112 LSA.

Started fishing the transmission & driveline from the donor car. Going to utilize as many pieces as I can from the mid 90's BMW.





I don't think I can use much but even having the transmission, clutch and driveshaft I feel like I've got most of the T-bucket project already...minus the T.

Grab lots of bits and pieces like harness and other parts for the parts bin. All the little pieces mount up. Ask me how I know..

ID:	433473I like your choice of using the Jag IRS in your build.
They are capable of handling quite a lot of HP.
I have attached several pages of a document that will help ID your diff.
There are numerous little changes that were mad to these rear ends over the life time of them being produced.

Being that you seem to be keen to do things right, may I suggest that you consider the following modification to your Jag diff build.
I will attach in my next post the last page of the current ID pages and a pic of such a modified diff.

The mod is to use the outer hubs and brakes of a later model Jag, I believe the model is called an XJ40.
This mod offer you clear space for your exhaust to pass thru as the disc brake rotors are removed to the outer hub.
It also offers you a much better park brake arrangement.
All you do is machine up a spacer in say aluminum the thickness of the disc brake flange that you are removing.
The only other mod is a slight amount of reaming to adapt the older hub shaft and bearings to the new XJ40 hub.

May I suggest that while I like the engine you are using and the frame you have chosen, but I feel a lot of your effort maybe wasted putting it into a T bucket body.
They look great and turn heads but....
Your call, but I see other T choices as more functional and since this looks to be a build that has a great capacity to be driven any where, comfort comes to mind.
I feel you could be investing your time and money into a body that will provide you with a greater capacity to recover your costs and be more drivable all year round.

Just my 2 cents worth and take it as just another opinion to consider.
Keep up the good work.

AS PROMISED HERE IS THE LAST PAGE AND PIC OF THE MODIFED JAG IRS I MENTIONED.

There are two main styles of rear cross member to mount the diff as shown in the attached pic's
Generally for a Model T the single center over the top style would be commonly used.
