    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...

    Re: Marina wheel studs

    I think you will find that the classic mini wheel studs, whilst having the correct thread have a spline diameter that is smaller than the Marina hub.
    As always if will be interesting to learn if the...

    There are multiple suppliers in the UK, but not many of them, post Brexit, will necessarily want to post to the EU with additional customs/import charges.

    Not that I ever found. They would have to fit inside your wheels, it may not be so easy.

    Re: Dolomite Sprint Rear Axle

    A very nice addition to a Roadster.
    It’s not a straight swop, unless this one has already had Marina style spring saddles and handbrake/rear hydraulic hardware welded in place.

    Re: Marina rear axle.

    Changing the crownwheel and pinions as individual parts is not really a job for the home mechanic, it’s a more specialist job and requires specific tools. Many have tried and the parts end up in a...

    Re: Marina rear axle.

    What is the problem with your existing diff?
    there are two different ratios for the Marina, a mismatch will be a disappointment.

    Re: A series and axle

    Presumably a 1.3 Marina axle and not a 1.8. For the uninitiated they are different ratios but externally look identical.

    I looked at this many years ago. Without removing the rear tub and welding parts to the chassis, I considered it too much effort.

    To my knowledge at this time of the day, none of the Triumph clutches match the 1.8, neither in diameter or the number of splines on the gearbox input shaft.

    Re: Overhauling a rear axle - how far to go?

    It can be done, but the hub is rectangular so a three point puller is an uneven pull and can release unexpectedly.
