  • Inspecting a Triumph IRS Frame

    I did a quick video to potentially help prospective buyers on what to look out for when purchasing an IRS Triumph TR. Though it would be good to post is here.

    Nice Tush. A great video for a new person. Especially the crack in the passenger side front diff mount. I keep telling people it’s not if it’s when. I think a big reason for it is lack of mtce on the bushings.

    There are other potential areas around the spring towers up front. Little cracks as well as the steering rack mounts specifically that funky bit on the driver side.

    Other stuff for potential buyers is carefully check for bent a-arm mounts. Not just cracks. I’ve seen bent mounts indicating collision. And bracing between the spring towers and the frame. Seen wrinkles in those. These are things you can see by turning the wheels. The bent mounts can be seen by viewing from above in the engine bay

    Cheers
