    Wanted TR4A Live axle frame

    I'm in the market for a TR4A Live axle frame to replace the very poorly repaired frame that is currently in my car. Let me know if you have one or know someone that does!

    Edit: I'm willing to...
  2. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    I remember coming across your post with these pictures before. Going that route is probably more ambitious that I want to deal with at this point. :)
  3. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    I think it is definitely the camera angle.

    This is a prime example of a hackjob repair. Some other examples of what is wrong on the repaired side is the turret rubs against the steering rack boot...
  4. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    I'm definitely not considering replacing just the turret. The underlying frame is mangled enough that I think the whole corner needs to be replaced with a salvaged portion from another frame. As much...
  5. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    So I'm still on the lookout for a frame that is in decent shape, but in the mean time I've been taking some measurements and getting a closer look at the hack job that was done on my car.

    It...
  6. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    Suspension components LOOK ok. I'd like to put the car up on jack stands and measure everything just to see how badly bent the frame is. I may attempt that this weekend.
  7. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    I don't have a problem waiting. I'm just trying to get opinions on everything I come across from people more experienced than I :)

    I'm still waiting on pictures from tirnipgreen so in the meantime...
  8. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    Thoughts on repair-ability of this frame?

    TR4/4A Re: SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    So I rebuilt the carbs with the SU master rebuild kit. The old spindles were definitely worn but the front carb bushings are worn enough that it still has play and leaks at idle with the new spindles...
  10. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    Those are the plans at this point.
  11. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    I have absolutely no desire to do a restoration :)

    The goal is to just be mechanically sound which it currently isn't. I'm fully prepared to replace worn gaskets, bushings and such as I come...
  12. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    Would you mind PMing me some pictures?

    Thanks!
  13. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    Thank you :)

    I'll get it back into better shape one way or another.
  14. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    He's actually the one I've contacted :)
  15. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    That is what I'm leaning towards doing. I may have found a frame for ~$850. I've contacted the owner to get pictures and more details on it. Not sure if it is a live axle version or a IRS frame yet....
  16. TR4/4A Re: Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    Yes the damage does affect the handling of the car. It always pulls to the left, is very unsettled when hitting bumps at decent speeds and wears the inner portion of the passenger front tire quickly...
  17. TR4/4A Tackling the biggest problem with my TR4A.... Frame Damage :(

    As the title says, My TR4A has frame damage. I've said this before in previous posts but I inherited this car off of my Uncle Mark Joslyn ~10 years ago. I have no history on the car whatsoever. I'm...

    TR4/4A Re: SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    That was my understanding as well. But it appears that these have already had brass sleeves put in them at some point in the past which has me worried that there could be wear on them as well as the...

    TR4/4A Re: SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    I was wondering about the possibility of putting grease on the spindle to temporarily "seal" the vacuum leak. I"ll get a full gasket set, replace the old ones, do some testing and go from there after...

    TR4/4A Re: SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    Good to know. I'm not surprised to find out that he sells the reamer kit for more than double the price he charges to do the bushing/shaft install service. I'll definitely make sure that I really...

    TR4/4A Re: SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    I may try that first when I decide to pull the carbs and take them apart. There is an almost an imperceptible amount of play in the shaft rights now, which I'm sure is way too much.

    I'm thinking...

    TR4/4A Re: SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    I took some more careful measurements and the shafts on mine are also 0.310. Also after some more cleaning and having a closer look the bodies have been sleeved already at some point in the past. It...

    I did come across his videos earlier today but he doesn't have any specifically up on the HS type carbs. He does mention in the H type bushing installation video about reaming the new bushings to...

    TR4/4A SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    I had inherited this car from my uncle around 10 years ago and I know nothing about its history. I'm finally in a place where I can start to work on some of the minor issues it has so on to my...
