    Re: Marlin suspension front and rear

    I don’t think there is a specific supply problem.
    This whole subject still revolves around the bad press that the Marina got when it was first released.
    The Marina suspension was designed with the...

    Re: Marlin suspension front and rear

    There is nothing in my experience that transfers directly from a Marina to a Minor though there are generic similarities.
    Minor owners seek out Marina parts to improve performance, particularly...

    In the first instance they will not pass an IVA or MOT unless you have a mechanical system as well

    O series are indeed rare, stick with it, don’t be impatient.
    Have you tried the Morris Marina owners club they might be able to help.
    Failing that, it could be time to put a Zetec Inside.

    Re: Overheating Roadster

    Precise timing by the book is a bit of a pipe dream based on leaded fuel not on E5 or the soon to arrive E10 fuels that have very different burn characteristics. Pinking or preignition is the thing...
