Can the body of a tr4 be taken off the chassis

Can the body of a Triumph TR4 1962 be taken off the chassis without dismantling it to repair outriggers and rust to chassis. There is a lot of rust on the chassis and a couple of the outriggers are missing. The car was tidied up last year and we didn't want to dismantle it if possible. We would also like to look at the gearbox whilst we have the body off.

If I remember correctly you have to take the front wings off first and then you can unbolt the tub, if you can leave the doors on do so, as if the sills were not quite fitted perfectly or are slightly corroded they could distort, with the doors on all will be kept square. Dont forget to treat any surface rust or bare metal that is hidden by the chassis normaly, I use POR15.

We have new break shoes, calabraters,master cylender and bled. only right front break works. what could the problem be?

Some vehicles have a splitter that will shut off fluid to one wheel in case you blow a brake line. It has to be recentered to get fluid to both sides. Boy that brings back memories of my old Triumph TR4!

I had an accident a few months ago on the front right side, the wheel was driven back and after I got it from the shop it is not running well, I was told that the chassis is open and needs to be adjusted,...

You cannot perform any chassis repair yourself. It requires specialized equiptment and expertise. The ONLY way to repair the chassis is to take your car to a reputable certified body shop.

I am rebuilding my 63 TR4 from the ground up. At

good parts stores carry several spark testers used in different ways-- better than holding coil wire near metal(a ground) and having a friend crank the engine altho if you are careful you can do this just remember 20,000 volts is there and will get the best of us, dont try it if you have a more modern coil the newer cars have a different ign. and can burn up if crank with out the coil being connected correctly

Remove body from chassis

To remove the body from the chassis you need to unbolt the body mount bolts, disconnect all linkages such as throttle, shift, etc., electrical connections and wiring harnesses, brake, fuel and emission lines, heater hoses and AC lines, and lift the body straight up off the frame. You almost have to have access to a car hoist to do this, and to do the job succesfully requires a pretty high level of mechanical aptitude.

Well, that's it ...but if you really have to ask how, you might need to hire some qualified help such as a body and frame repair shop.
