The radiator choice will be critical electric fan or fans is a must I will be keeping the jag rear cage bolted direct to the frame same with the front suspension, one thing I am looking forward to is the wiring the XJS was a complex car and pre can-bus so there is a million miles of wiring in the vehicle this caused a few issues to say the least, I will be simplifying wiring and vacuum systems still a lot to figure out but that keeps it interesting.

I overhauled the Dana differential yesterday looking at the internals its heavy duty and bullet proof made in the USA, cleaned lubricated and new seals its ready to be assembled to make up the Jaguar IRS (independent rear suspension). Inboard rear brakes next I have decided to leave out the rear cage and make a cross member for the diff to mount to you get to see all that engineering Jaguar techs developed and it just gives it a better look.
posted a few extra pics of the differential

Thanks for the great photos. That looks to be a really interesting project.

BTW, the Dana manufactured differential unit that you have is quite rare on a Jaguar, most had the UK manufactured Salisbury diff which had 10 splines on the pinion, rather than your 26 spline setup.

Best of luck with the project.

Hey Paul(Moff) looks like your truck's caught the attention of 'us' Brits! wink

BTW. I hope the quake hasn't caused too much chaos where you are....

I assume judging by your reply you're a Jaguar technician then,that explains a lot!
Sounds scary!

My wife's best friend stays in Newport News,she's a Scots lass and had never experienced a quake,so between that and tornado warnings,she's a nervous wreck!
There was a tornado touched down near Va. Beach when we were there last year.
I've never seen thunderstorms and rain like it.....spectacular!

The problem is she was told to listen for a sound like a freight train coming,problem is she stays about a 1/4 mile from the train tracks!
