    A group for the technical support of MkII Roadsters based on a Morris Marina/Ital or commercials (Marlin Chassis 2151 onwards)

    It is intended to be an aid to sourcing parts and resolving maintenance issues, as well as being a central resource for all those irritating characteristics, that many owners have worked hard to design out.

    There are no conditions in joining or contributing to the group discussion. To get there click "Community", (just under "What's New") use the drop down list to select "groups" and off you go. or...

    Thanks to those who have joined the Marina Roadster Owners Group.

    From the membership details published in Pitstop, around 6% of the total MOC members every year are made up by new Marina Roadster Owners. Thatís 30+ new owners, every year. Many may not be familiar with the Morris Marina and Marlin Roadster design characteristics and may well need some support to keep the cars in reliable roadworthy condition.

    I started the group with the intention of archiving important information on parts availability, refurbishment and various technical discussions, to complement the existing forum. For example the Overheating Marina Roadster discussion, combines information from many different sources, some of which might otherwise be missed by a simple forum search.

    To date, since the group started, 135+ copies of the shared Adobe Acrobat files have been downloaded. Clearly there is an interest.

    There is a wealth of knowledge and experience within the MOC and it is hoped that other Marina Roaster Owners will make their own contributions.

    There have been twenty downloads of my 'Morris Marina Rear axle differential' article at http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/4039...34-pm-81k?da=y

    I have made a couple of significant edits, on Speedo gears and Hub oil seals that may be of interest.

    I have now uploaded substantial portions of the BL Marina Worshop Manual to Keepandshare.
    http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/4204...5-pm-877k?da=y

    You have to register (FREE) to see them.

    I now have over 70 individual Marlin related files shared there. Indexing them individually on this forum is no longer practical as I add and edit some docs frequently.

    If you cannot access them after registering, contact me via PM.

    Hi Steve,
    Please accept my apologies, but I do not have a clue how to operate this system ! My question to your goodself and anybody else that may be able to provide guidance , is there a parts list somewhere , on the net , or on the club's site , where I can find out the manufacturer's part number , for example: the brake caliper for a 1700 Ital ?
    Appreciate any help that you can give.

    Hi Steve.
    I am currently in Spain, far from my parts books back in the UK but as far as I can recall the brakes for an Ital follow the Marina pattern.

    A good friend wrote this on his own website. It includes part numbers from Rimmer Brothers, Triumph parts stockists, many parts on a Marina followed the Dolomite range.

    Hope this info helps.
