  1. Re: Just suppose you have to tow your Marlin on a trailer...

    I agree with Scott. My car has been hauled onto a couple of trailers using the track control arm without a problem. The TCA is strong enough to withstand the mass of a donor vehicle hitting a bump at...

    Happy New Year all.

    While we are in various tiers of lockdown I thought a few recommendations for Automotive (and engineering) videos might be in order. These are a few that I have found. I hope...

    Re: Smiths Fuel Gauge To Tank Sender

    I would have thought it was certain that there will always be some oxygen in a fuel tank. It doesn’t need much to explode.

    Re: Fuel neck and filler cap

    I agree Fordopedia is a most excellent resource. I just thought it would be difficult to purchase a filler using the part number as Ford dealers are unlikely to have any.

    I notice the picture...

    Indicator stalk clearance fix

    I know some Marlin’s indicators are too close to the dashboard. I saw this fix in “Complete Kit Car” that I thought looked pretty neat.

    Re: Type 9 Gearbox in a Roadster

    One thing to check is that the gearbox is level longitudinally and laterally. The oil should be about level with centreline of the input and output shaft. A slight lowering of this level might cause...

    Re: Overheating Roadster

    I still wonder if mixture is the problem. Does the overheating occur idling in traffic or under load such as on a motorway?

    If it overheats when idling it is most probably the cooling system.

    Re: Clunking Differential - play/ backlash?

    Hi Charlh94,
    I would still guess that something is not as secure as it should be. You have ruled out a clunk inside the diff as there is little backlash. Ford diffs are very robust. When worn make...

    Re: Clunking Differential - play/ backlash?

    Hi, and welcome to the club.

    Assuming your diff is from a Ford Sierra, the first clunk think I think of is the rear diff mounting. That is an encased rubber affair and after all these years many...

    The £20 Argos cover works for me. It has lasted 15 years but I do keep the car in a garage.
