    Default Regearing a jag rear….. advice before I start

    Ok, following everyone’s advice on doing gears before converter I have gone ahead and ordered a bunch of stuff, probably would be cheaper to farm it out, but like the guy the guy in the video I’m going to ask people to watch ( to tell me if he’s got everything and or missed anything I should know) I want to do as
    Much of the wrench turning on my car as I can!!!
    I have ordered every part number he says, and got the Dana 3:73 gears. I haven’t ordered a shim pack yet as it’s one of
    my questions……
    here is the link if anyone has the time to watch it.. if not I will still move forward, but might get stopped awaiting on a part that’s not mentioned etc



    now my first question on the shim pack, is it carrier specific? Housing specific? Or gear specific? It’s a jag Salisbury diff, will have auburn gear lsd and Dana 44 gears….

    Ok, this isn’t off to a great start, been refunded my money from company I ordered the auburn gear carrier from as they say it’s not available, found another company that claimed they had it, then I get email saying expect delay in shipping as it’s coming direct from manufacturer, guess I’m waiting regardless because I also go email from kegs saying both the gears and the yoke are back ordered……. More to follow if I ever get my parts….

    It sounds liked a fabbed 8.8 or 9" may be the fastest route lol. Good luck, delays really suck!

    Another option is to buy a pumpkin from a salvage yard and just bolt it in. I believe almost all will interchange and will be a Salisbury unit. Get one from a '93-96 XJS as most were 3.54 power locks. I used one from '95 with the 3.54 PL and run a Yank SS 3600 convertor. Quite the combo but you'll need some tires. I just put new ones on mine.

    Sorry for delay in responding, I tried looking for pumpkins and most of the ones I found were 2.88 just like mine and they wanted a small fortune for them, plus I wasn’t sure which newer model
    Ones were compatible, as they have outboard brakes and speed sensors etc, so I ordered everything on the above listed you tube video, finally got the last piece in on Monday!! ( or so I though, still need to order ring gear bolts) being as we are now approaching the holidays, the regard Will likely wait until the week between Christmas and New Years as I’m off that week.
    I
    However going to be trying to sort the tune out form once gears are done, but will post my questions on that in the pcm section.
