Re: Jag rear axle ID

Oops, my mistake....I'd have swore that thing weighed twice that amount...:-)

I have to believe the Jag IRS hub to hub weighs considerably more than the C6...everything is steel or cast iron except for the uprights.

Re: Jag rear axle ID

Yeah, it was rather spectacular going off like a grenade at 80 mph :-)...picture of the resulting carnage below. To be fair though, it was the wimpy D36 variant (7.8" ring gear) that came out of a wrecked '87 vette. I believe the diff was damaged from the wreck, it was never right. Pinion seal leake...

Re: WTB All stainless overriders

Tom,

Cobra Restorers may have what you're looking for, the mounting plates appear to be SS in the site product photo. $195 for the front pair.

Re: Motor Parts

Ken,

Looks like you're making good progress, how long do you figure before the motor goes back in the car?

Re: Old Photo Thread

Cool photos Tom, was that the finished state of the car? Where were the photos taken? Do you keep in touch with any of the guys in the photos?

Re: Some days you are the windshield...

Nice Tom, clearly this must have been well before your current obsession with oversized motors...love the hand painted race stripe...you need to switch your meatball numbers to 4...:-)
