Jaguar project rear axle

Of coarse every problem has at least one solution involving a hammer.

It is just a simple matter of selecting the correct one for the job.

Rear axle housing for Salisbury with all the feathers and bones removed.

Last week I brought over the box of parts I had received, and the disc brake assemblies to make sure everything would fit back together. 

I got all new bearings and seals. Should be good for another 60 years.

Jaguar project rear axle

Jaguar Wednesday visit to Advanced Driveline. We went through the parts of 3 axles to see what can be used. Made an inventory of all the bearings, seals, and gaskets that need to be ordered.

Third axle is on the bench in the back.

Best set of gears.
The ring is 49 tooth, and the pinion is 13 making for a 3.769230769 or rounding up to 3.77 ratio.

So the car is still layed up in the garage waiting for parts. Advanced driveline is going to clean and prepare check everything. So once I get the parts, I should be well on the way to getting on the road.
