    Berli (600x376).jpg

    I pass a house that has had a Berli sitting outside for a long time. It has moved from a garden on one side of the road to the other! I don't know anything about the car or even if it's for sale but I could knock on doors if interested.
    The car is located in Bishopton just outside Glasgow.

    The Berli I saw was defo registered as I checked the DVLA website and the Tax and MOT expired in August 2015, I think. I can't find the wee bit of paper that I had the Reg No on to double check.

    Next time I pass I'll try and spot it again.

    Passed by last week and it has vanished. Nowhere to be seen either in old or new garden. I found my bit of paper and reg is Q507 RCA if anyone has any knowledge of it.

    Another one not known in the archive ! Love the fuel filler cut out, not seen one like that before.

    Pretty please more pics and details of chassis number for our records

    Send me a PM if you'd rather keep it private, or my email address is in Pitstop

    Thanks in anticipation

    Hi Fellow Marliners.
    I very almost had a trouble free trip back from this weekends Suffolk meet in my Roadster , where I meet a great bunch of fellow Marliners.
    Again thanks Geoff and Jan for arranging this

    I have noticed that the Marina rear axle breather had broken off (it was still sitting on the axle).

    The part has snapped off at the white threaded plastic part , I still have the black rubber cap.

    I am aware that its the same as an MGB & Dolomite part number 21H6060.

    I suspect that the handbrake outer cable somehow got caught around it and when I pulled the handbrake and snapped it off.

    The part looks like :
    Rear Axle breather.jpg

    I wondered if :
    1) Has anyone else has encountered this breakage problem whilst using the Marina rear axle?

    2) If the Landrover series 2/3 brass breather valve is the same thread size, as it's a lot stronger?
    It looks like:
    Land Rover Series 1-2-3.jpg

    Thanks
