    Re: Marlin sold?

    I was given the article by Terry Matthews so she probably sent it to other relevant publications as well. Just waiting to get the official details of the owners of the Sportster/Cabrio and Exi....

    Re: Suspension questions

    Happy to be corrected on this but I believe the ideal caster angle for good self centring is about 6 deg whereas the Marina set up is 2 to 3 deg. This may have been ok on the Marina (never driven one...

    Re: Suspension questions

    The low level of steering self centring on the Marina based Roadster is a common problem and the castor angle is, in theory, non adjustable. Some members have slightly increased the castor angle by...

    Re: Marlin 1800 clutch

    Its been many years since I aligned a clutch but I have a multi purpose tool that accommodates a range of spigot bearing and shaft sizes from about 5/8 to 7/8". Just a thought.

    I agree with Paul in that the failure is probably caused by stress concentration as a result of the difference in thickness of the mounting plate and chassis. I suspect the thinner chassis section is...

    Re: Seat Belts

    Thanks Scott,

    Re: Historie van deze wagen

    If you can tell us the model, original UK registration and chassis number of the car we may be able to tell the origin and history. Not sure if we have any Belgian or Dutch members but I can check.

    Re: Rear anti roll bar mount

    Some models of the Sierra did have a rear anti roll bar fitted but the attachment to the trailing suspension arm was not the same as on the Cabrio. Mystery indeed!
