David, I truly understand how you feel. I finally got the third body to build the Spit6 that was the less of all the evils of the first two. Still lots of work, but the trunk was good. The guys son had painted it with a house paint by brush, that saved it.Wayne

Wow.. don't know how my CFO could react to a second, much less a THIRD body...I'm pretty sure the Beast wasn't painted with a brush, but sometimes it seems like it was welded by a... don't know what...

David, If I had much trouble in the south, I can't imagine how bad they rust in your area.Sometimes the cutting wheel is your best friend. You might want to talk to Doug (1147cc), he does a lot of body parts.Wayne

Eric, go behind the seats on the shelf and there are two bolts that hole the bracket in place. Take a few turns off both and it should free the bracket up to get the bolt out.Wayne

Yes all the bolts are out on the shelf side but the arm is stuck - it can't rotate down due to interference with the underside of the heelboard itself. I'll try to take a picture under there.(And please call me David :-)

Sorry David, was just helping a buddy named Eric get his TR4A ready for summer. The engine needed help 5 years ago and I told him this is the last year I'll help get it on the road without a rebuild over the winter.On your trailing arm. You may have to take the vertical link off, that would be a pain, but just three bolts, top, trunnion and shock. Wayne

The 'nuts' on the inside of the tub are part of the bracket and won't come off. Like Wayne said, you need to remove the bolts from the other side.

Except the nuts did come off and I got the bolt out of the arm but it's still interfering with the heelboard flange

Yes. I should have specified more clearly. I watched your YouTube video. I was meaning the nut looking things once you get the real ones off.
