Chassis Strengthening


Recommended Posts

Long thread on this on Club Triumph Forum recently.

 

The way to stiffen a structure is to add air - in other words make it bigger and wider, so that a space frame is the best addition.

But in fact a good body (apart from a convertible one) will make a Herald much stiffer than its chassis alone, but instead of using rubber or other non-rigid material on the chassis-to-body mount points, use a solid material.

 

An article by John Thomasson many years ago in Courier  discussed chassis stiffness, and proposed a couple of mode, one practicla and one less so.

Suggest you dig that out. Is the "Technical Index" still available?   If not ask HQ to find it.
