Re: Jag diff - Dana 44 CWP conversion

Thank you all for the messages, even if I'm still not sure 100% it helps.

Just talking to someone I recently learned that there are 4 types of input shaft bearings!!
We always learn.
So I'll order a Dana Spicer set of gears from the US and see what I can do with it...

Re: Jag diff - Dana 44 CWP conversion

@ PhilK : Are you not a friend of Steve (Southern Classics in Twickenham) ?
Yesterday I asked him about that subject and he told me a story very similar to yours.

Jag diff - Dana 44 CWP conversion

Hi everybody. Apparently the crown wheel and pinion in a Jag diff are identical to the American Dana 44. There are more splines for the flange, and the bolts holding the crown wheel to the carrier have a different size. These differences can be solved. Has anyone tried fitting an American Dana 44 CW...

Re: Oil pressure gauge for stronger pump

I just had a look, seems a good reliable idea but...
Is is easy to fit? The pipe will take a lot of space behind the dashboard and will not be very flexible I guess.
Still possible to open the dashboard with it?

Thanks

Oil pressure gauge for stronger pump

Hi

I fitted a stronger oil pump and pressure release valve from Rob Berre on a 1967 E-type.
Now the pressure gauge is just always on the maximum (60) except at iddle, around 40-50 PSI.
A V12 gauge goes to 80 PSI, is it a good idea?
Does anyone have any better recommendation?

Thanks
James

Later brakes - early differential

Hi
I'm about to modify the back brakes on a 1967 E-type, I'll fit vented disks using Rob Beere's kit.
Does anyone know if it's possible to fit later calipers on an early differential?

Thanks
James

Chassis geometry data/setting

Hi everyone

I replaced all the front frames on a 1967 E type.
Now I need to re set everything, does anyone have the chassis geometry data or knows where I could find that?
Parallelism, caster, camber

Thanks in advance

Camshaft lifetime

Hi everyone, I'm building a 4.2l long studs, big valves for a 1967 E-type. So I'm basically replacing the engine by a more modern one. My problem is that I have to keep the old camshafts for the tacho drive. I'd like to be sure they're still usable. Is there a tolerance chart to measure them and see...
