    ill start by saying hello to everyone, im quite new to the marlin world, but have instantly fell in love with my triumph based roadster.
    i have just been refused an mot as the steering component is not secure to the vehicle structure, i am trying to find out what this means as the car has passed every mot down south for the previous 20+ years.
    if anyone can tell me what this means or how i should secure it, it would be much appreciated.
    (the car as i said before is triumph based with a 1300 spitfire engine if this makes any difference)
    thanks in advance
    wayne

    Hi Wayne and welcome! I would give the mot tester a quick call and ask him specifically what the issue is - they are supposed to tell you.

    Thats an MOC members only area of the forum so not visible to Wayne as he appears not to be an MOC member.
    MOC member since 05/97
    1984 Marlin Roadster SWB.
    1800TC, Unleaded ported head, stage 2 cam. Ford Type 9 gearbox, Dolomite Sprint rear axle fitted with MGF disc brakes.
    Three core radiator, Renault Clio vented front discs.
    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.
