    the body work on the Marlin has been extensively modified by a previous owner - Can anyone explain the thinking behind this please ???

    Definitely for attaching a 12" flymo! I will follow you and use my extra rad scoop to collect the grass! See next pitstop issue and all will be revealed Peter.

    Can't say its aesthetic! Cooling requires airflow, unless it was a desperate attempt to feed an oil cooler with air at the expense of the water radiator?

    Tank is Escort van/estate mk1-2.
    Look like you are missing a cross-brace which the trailing edge of the tank would bolt to.

    The instructions say you will need a piece of 25mm angle to support the tank.

    Also on my tank it is at the back not the front like yours

    Deffo an Escort tank. If you get the chance mount it from underneath! Saves removing the rest tub to get it out if it starts leaking.
