have to type this left handed, don't ask. but the /t won this round.
someone offered me att rolling chassis and I want to make sure it fit on my trailer. all i can find is the length of the tt, not the width.
same width a t?

If with rims figure an extra 2 feet over a car chassis, if with tires add an extra foot for a total of 3 extra. The front is the same width and the rear a little bit more.

The front width, whether you look at axle length, hubcap to hubcap, or outside to outside at the fenders is, by definition, the same as a regular T. The out to out dimension of the rear wheels will probably be about 3 inches more than a regular T due to bigger thicker rear tires.

Remember, although the TT is longer and heavier, the front end sheet metal, the engine mountings, the front axle, and the radiator are all the same parts as a regular T.

Robert
Did your right hand get bit by the crank handle?

yes knew better, but had brain fart. was crank starting it all day long at a show with thosrt q/t turn upward pulls and it started every time. One time it didn't start and the crank ended up around the two oclock position. for some reason, I put my right hand on the crank and started to slowly crank it just to get it back into the 8 oclock position arian and it chugged and pushed back about 2 inches. broke four bones in the forearm and wrist
but I won a trophy!

no surgery, but various repositioning casts over the next 5 to 8 weeks

lesson learned

When I did that it hurt so bad I passed out on the ground. That's why now I preach the Gospel of proper cranking.
