Wide troyers - what is different?

OK, I've never worked on a narrow or wide troyer before. Chassis dynamics, spafco, a couple oddballs, but never touched a Troyer. I did just pickup a bare chassis for a winter project.
What exactly is different on these than a standard 96, or newer than 00 troyer? Suspension, body, nerfs?  Can I move the nerf mounts and body tin to use the regular chassis stuff? And what spindles would this thing run, 137's?

Thanks, yeah I know it's a basic question, but I've never even wondered what was different before.

1. Obviously the snout is 34" wide instead of 32". The biggest difference I know of is the lower a-frame mounts are offset. One is 1" forward of the other.

2. Not sure on the tin/nerfs. I would think if you wanted to build it that way, you could.

3. They were originally designed for 137L and either 137R or 162 on the right side. Somewhere along the way, they started using a 171L in an effort to get them to turn better. So there are options.

Hope this helps,.................kt

Thanks KT! Ass always, you're eager to help out.

Any idea on the rear end width? What tubes would it use, specific to the car, or standard troyer?

And to totally wear everybody out, what's the standard setup on these on the rear? One chassis is bent in the nose, but they cut an 04 clip off because it was a pinto rack. I'm thinking of using that on the nose, or just biting the bullet and putting on a 2010 clip. Are the rear end setups on the troyers that much different across the years?

Standard rear end width. Not anything different set-up wise.

I wouldn't use a Pinto clip, unless you personally prefer that style. I guess that's up to you.............kt
