    The Marina parts book only shows the BL part number.

    Normally there are numbers on the edge of the bearing and the outer race that quite often relate to the dimensions.

    This site has a matching chart which may help.

    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    Hi Michael,
    If it helps, my '86 Roadster, (Marina based), rear wheel bearing kit on e bay was FBK019,
    I/D 25mm
    O/D 62mm
    W 16 mm
    I replaced one side a couple of years ago. An absolute b....r to get the hub off from what I remember. Had to carefully angle grind the outer race off and remove the balls one by one to remove the hub. Gareth.

    The front wheel bearings are tapered. If set up in accordance with the workshop manual they will have a little play, between 0.001” and 0.005”, difficult to measure without a Dial Test Indicator.

    In the UK, often MOT annual inspection will fail because of excessive play. This is because they compare to a modern car. Refer the tester to the workshop manual if that is your case.
    If you overtighten the wheel bearings, they will simply wear faster.

    Unfortunately I cannot help with Timken part numbers except to quote BL part numbers which won’t take you much further forward.

    As Ben says, the bearings are invariably marked with a manufacturers part number, not the BL part number, but you will have to dismantle to read them, at which point you will have the bearings in your hand that can then be cross referenced with your parts store.

    Marina rear wheel hubs/bearings can be a pain. Best to use a 25 ton hydraulic press. Don’t be tempted to heat them, you could destroy the temper on the half shafts, resulting in premature catastrophic failure.

    The front bearing kit (inner, outer & seal) is GHK1004 and is common to the Triumph TR7.
    Same is true for the rear bearing kit, GHK1030, which is used in the TR7 4-speed models.

    If all else fails Rimmer Bros in the UK will ship overseas.
    Marlin Roadster, LWB...1860 B Series + Ford Type 9
    Renault Espace 54mm front calipers, vented discs, cycle wings and adjustable tie-bars.

    Shipping costs Canada- UK can be variable. Mostly from across the pond VAT+ is chargeable. Brexit could change anything.

    Hi got mine from Bearing Traders

    https://bearingtraders.com

    £25 both sides and found a friendly garage who pressed them on for £10.

    Make sure you note the distance they have to be pressed on as this is VERY important.

    By the way they will ship abroad.

    Ask first, I think you will find them reasonable.

    Regards

    Adrian
