Is that a brake bundy tube visible near the trunnion's grease nipple?  Long time since I had a drum braked TR2 (was 1963), but it looks vulnerable to me.

It is, and I think it looks worse than it actually is

Mine is sandwiched between the bumper iron and chassis. It wasn’t quite long enough to use both of the existing bolts so I drilled an extra hole for a high tensile bolt.

That is an excellent solution Drew and it will be my plan B. Looking at the bumper iron on a TR3a, how beefy it is and how it is bolted to the frame I think my plan A will be a tow strap secured by a bolt into an existing hole (perhaps enlarged a bit) in the bumper iron. Given that the use will be a slow tow into the trailer I cant imagine that putting a lot of stress on that bumper iron.

As I had already removed my radiator shield preparatory to removing the engine, I spent a couple of hours modifying it a la I jonnson’s solution. Dead simple to do and more than enough for towing a TR.
