  2. Re: Front shackle bolt size for Marina leaf spring

    I would check the ID of a Superflex Bush for confirmation.
  3. Re: Front shackle bolt size for Marina leaf spring

    It’s definitely imperial, not sure what your real question is?

    Re: Marina Roadster Spares

    Can I suggest a new post because anti tramp could be of interest to many others.

    Its a salutary lesson for others, start with the easy stuff first.

    Re: Tom Frame please contact me

    I would go the CVH route, try to find a Dolomite sprint rear axle and depending on your skills remove the spring mounts and replace them with Marina leafs or modify the chassis to suit the Sprint...

    Re: Tom Frame please contact me

    With the amount of work you are proposing, I think I would be considering a recent power plant and transmission like an MX5 rather than an antiquated MGB that would require a great deal of work. Only...

    Re: Morris Marina Spares

    Earlpart went bust, Longbridge bought their complete stock back in 2016, I did post on this forum then.

    Re: Handbrake help

    Re: SU carb anti run-on valve

    could this be the start of a magnum opus to add to my collection.

    Re: Brakes - Single or dual circuit?

    What you do to a vehicle after it has been IVA approved is up to the individual owner.
    The legislation will be vague when an inappropriate modification is carried out, and the vehicle sold on...

  16. Re: SU carburetor overhaul - screw types BA?

    Re: NOS 1.7 O Series Engine

    Pictures show both as the same engine, but different sellers. My alarm bells are ringing.

    No ancillaries which may pose a problem if you need a thermostat housing.

    Re: Brakes - Single or dual circuit?

    My suggestion would be to make sure that your rear brakes are functioning at their best.
    The alleged Marina auto-adjusters are notorious for not auto-adjusting.

    Re: Type 9 Gearbox in a Roadster

    If you built from a 1.3 donor, the rear leaf springs are weaker than the 1.8. Along with the front torsion bars.
