    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.

    Re: Removing engine and transmission

    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.
