After a long break of about 3 years I did get the jag rear mounted in the Buick. I used a Snow white install kit and it made the install easy enough. I still need to do the radius rods of about 40" long. The sedan rear is 61.5" hub to hub. I am planing to ad 1.25" wheel adapters to get the track a little wider and be able to use the 5x5 true spoke wheels.
I am still working on the '23 T bucket along with the old Buick'

Watercooled

Hopefully you will be rebuilding the rear end before finalizing everything..here is what I did..same setup as yours..

In addition, rent a spring compressor and take the shocks apart to see if any are shot. I had 2 dead ones.

thanks for your advise. As of now I wont be getting into the jag rear end rebuild. I do have another rear still in the car for any parts. Its easy to drop the unit out of the car when needed. I will be getting the T bucket going before the Buick along with the jet boat this summer.
I still have to build an engine for the 35 and finish the wood repair. All 4 door wood need a going over. It needs glass etc.
It was in rough shape although no metal rot or major damage. The bucket was a barn find so I snagged it.It was sitting for 28 years and never completed.
At 75 yrs and still going thanks to my 31 year old wife.

Ohhhh..35???? Boy howdy, I'd forget about hot rodding, of the car kind!!
Can't afford 60's muscle cars, and I like early hot rods. My first one was 1934 ford 3 window coupe all steel with chevy power.
Then a 24 T sedan delivery, 31 Buick, and a 1939 Cadallac La salle club coupe convertible. These were built from the late 60's through the early 80's. A long break until I started back 15 yrs ago with a m-29 weasel retro fitted with chevy IL six and powerglide. Then back to the cars.
cheers
