    What is the problem with your existing diff?
    there are two different ratios for the Marina, a mismatch will be a disappointment.

    Re: Removing engine and transmission

    To my knowledge at this time of the day, none of the Triumph clutches match the 1.8, neither in diameter or the number of splines on the gearbox input shaft.

    everything you ever wanted to know about Marina axles can be found on Keepandshare.

    Always listen to what Chris Weedon has to say, perhaps if you drive a Marina Based Roadster even subscribe to the Morris Marina Owners Club for good measure.
