As the title says, is it possible to fit up a EB diff and housing into an XE?

The reason:

We have an XE racecar that has a watts link 2:7 diff in it, and I understand that the pinion, crown wheel, etc from a 3:5 will not swap over in this housing for some stupid reason.

There is no handbrake to connenct, only a tailshaft and the brakes.

Anyone help?

The diff will bolt in, BUT, the EB diff has a flange, and the lower trailing arm brackets are wider on the EB diff housing, so you will need spacers to put either side of the bushing on the trailing arm.
