I'm trying to identify some spare tie rod ends and was wondering what the differences are between the inner and outer ends? Thanks

Check the positions in the photo for the grease fittings. The outer tie rod end has the 90 degree Zert sticking out the round top. For the inner tie rod end, the 90 degree Zert is out the side of the casting and is aiming upwards and facing a bit to to the front. Set the inlets for all your grease fitings so you can easily reach them next time you grease them with your grease gun.

They also have opposite-handed threads, although I forget offhand which is which.

Could you circle or otherwise mark the two zerts in the photo?

I assume you mean for the tie rod ends...

Thanks guys.
Don, from your answer and pic it would appear that:
- the left and right outer ends are the same
- the left and right inner ends differ in that the grease fittings are on
opposite sides, allowing for easy access on the top side, when fitted.
Some of my spare ends are the ones without grease fittings so by comparing threads with the zerk type ends it looks like the inners are right hand thread and the outers are left hand thread.
If I've got this right, I can now mark them and I'm done.
Thanks again.

That photo is a bit dusty, but was taken about 2005 or 2006 as I was finishing the restoration of a late TR3A for Frank in Toronto.
