    Open drive Pop?

    OK - an odd request.

    For reasons known only to my daft brain, I wish to convert a Pop rear axle to open drive like folks do with Model A and V8 rear banjo axles.

    I don't want to use a 100E back axle because (here comes the daft bit), I wish to retain the mechanical brakes.

    BTW, this is going in a Model-Y...don't ask.

    So, has anyone ever successfully converted a pop back axle to open drive or, option B, adapted Pop or Y mechanical brakes to a 100E back axle?

    Don't know the answer but I would find out the torque limitations of that axle before going too far considering your choice of engine Possible need something from a heavier axle ie E83W maybe ?

    Yes, I have looked into two short-side E83W axles mated to a V8 banjo, but a couple problems present themselves - first, sourcing two short-side housings! Second, that's not just a cut & shut deal - there's quite a bit of machining involved.

    One of the objectives is to obtain a better rear ratio for the Y. Stock is 5.5 - same as the pop. The 100E is better than that (not sure on ratio off top of my head), but I know there are "high speed" crownwheel/pinion sets for the pop at 4.7 and 4.3. The open drive is convenience more than anything...that and the possibility of using 100E trans...

    V860 won't happen soon - interim engine will be 100E most likely, but want to get the rpm down.
