Installing Ford 8.8 diff in MGB Gt

Looking to shorten a 8.8 Mustang diff and using the 9" Ford axles and bearing flanges.
Does anyone have measurement specs to build a 8.8 diff.

Somewhat depends on your choice of wheels and offset - if you keep the offset to the original rostyle offset of nominal 24mm then the overall axle width can be the same as the original MG ( I believe 51" across flanges)
When I had my 8.8 shortened by Moser, I kept the original axle width.and that worked out to 51-11/16 across the rotors.
