I have a 1960 MGA.  I am working on the front suspension.  After 
removing the tie rod ends, I held the inner tie rods horizontal and let 
go, they fell straight down with no resistance.  I thought there should 
be some resistance to them and that they should basically hold 
horizontal (but with free motion all around when moved by hand).  Is 
this correct.  If not how do I go about adjusting them.  Is it a 
"simple" tightening of the acorn nut like an MGB, or is it more 
involved.  The ball joint connection to the rack certainly looks a 
little different than an MGB.
