    Re: starter motor Marina 1800 Roadster

    Seeing the price of some of the starters on ebay, 1800 Diesels maybe? I would look at servicing the original. Mine has had a new solenoid and brushes under £20.

  3. Re: So I thought I might still have one more project in me..........

    Making CAD small patterns. 'Yorkshire Tea' cardboard is very good. The boxes can be opened up very easily and the card is almost craft quality. The tea is excellent too! It's looking good.

    Re: DRL152K Marina based roadster rebuild

    Very smart! When you mentioned bonnet bulges my 1800TC has L-R mountings and my carbs clear the bonnet but without going out to look I think the black spacers are narrower on mine and the front carb...

    Very nice, but expensive to make even in fiberglass. Maybe with the running boards of the Roadster etc.

    Re: Larger disc brakes

    If the front brakes lock easily, possibly a brake proportion valve eg CBS. BRKPROP2 or3 would be the answer. Reducing the front effort and transferring it to the rear. Bigger disks will just make...

    Re: Q219BAL Red Berlinetta, did you own it ?

    I agree with A_Hogg, plus, I think it is an engine out job to check/strip it all. Why did the original owner dump it after spending a lot of money on it? My son rebuilt a 1600 crossflow after having...

    Re: Q219BAL Red Berlinetta, did you own it ?

    If you have sparks and think the timing is right, try towing it. As you say the engine is tight, has it been rebuilt? Try a tow anyway, it is cheaper than throwing money at it. Find an auto...

    Re: Impatiently awaiting Spring.

    I too like the patina look, it makes them look like older sports cars rather than 'trailer queens'. But that's probably because mine is scruffy! I love the bonnet scoop. What is underneath it?

    Brilliant! Please explain why some cars barrelled round the bottom corner and up the hill and others stopped at a yellow flag?. Then started up. Was it because the track wasn't clear? Great to see...

    Re: Steering column position

    Franklin, thank you for your 'tatty cosmetics'. At last, I know that my electrics aren't the only ones in a state of 'constant development'! I like the angle of the Marina steering wheel.

    IMHO, I liked the light bar on an early Alfa that had a raised centre section for a 'cyclops' light. Sorry, no pics.
