    Re: Berlinetta Carpet

    I think you can guarantee that they have no comparison whatsoever except that they cover the transmission tunnel, floor and sides of the cockpit of a different car.

    Re: New Marlin owner

    It rather depends on your budget and your forward plan, you can spend £100 alone on a set of +20 piston rings for all four pots at Burton Power!

    If you start spending serious money you might as...

    Re: New Marlin owner

    Personally, if it were me, and the head does indeed need converting to unleaded, I would think seriously about getting the head ported to release a few more horses.
    There are numerous Ford parts...

    Re: New Marlin owner

    Sounds to me like someone fitted a crude ignition immobiliser to prevent the car from being started, even with a key.
    Not completely unheard of in the KitCar world where open cockpits are much more...

    Re: Dodgy wiring ...

    As I have said before there appears to be a strong correlation between modern Ethanol fuels and fuel system problems.
    Certainly, pump and seal materials from 30 years ago would not have been...

    Re: Dodgy wiring ...

    Bad connections are very different from having to trace wires that change colours because someone was lazy.

  9. Re: Roadster swb MGB engine and gearbox help

    My treaties on Overheating Roadsters at Keepandshare covers most of this, but it’s mostly irrelevant to fitting an MGB engine and gearbox in a Roadster.
  10. Re: Roadster swb MGB engine and gearbox help

    Converting a Marina block to MGB, is a lot more than a backplate. flywheel, starter motor, clutch, spigot bush, fuel pump, spring to mind.
  11. Re: Roadster swb MGB engine and gearbox help

    It was a typo, possibly exasperated by my iPad preferring ITV to IVA, which I was careful to check this time.

    But yes you are right, the Spanish ITV covers every technical inspection whether IVA...
  12. Re: Roadster swb MGB engine and gearbox help

    Presumably you are confident of passing an ITV, otherwise the additional work may be to no avail.

    I confess to more than one wiring ‘technical bodge’ putting a small circuit board in a 35mm film container, to control my thermostatic fan direct from the standard Marina temperature sender.

    Re: Van wheel nuts ...

    I’ve not done it on a van axle, but you can pop out the studs and replace them quite easily on Triumph and Marina axles.

    How are MGB wheels centred, are they bored to suit the axle boss, or are...

  19. Re: New and unused Roadster chassis for sale in Lancs

    Sad to say, but it’s worth less than being weighed in, unless you have an accident damaged Marina Based roadster that needs a new chassis.

    Not forgetting that Javelin Sportscars tried to market what was I believe was a Mk3 BMW based Cabrio.
