    Try Rimmer Bros or other Triumph specialists. Marina axle is Triumph-derived.

    Why? They don't do anything, The drums are held on by the wheel and four big studs, it's not like they can fall off.
    Formally DonSayers on here.

    I fit them if I've got them otherwise, not. The big thing is if you lose a wheel the drum gives you brakes if it is still in place! Also, it rolls instead of digging in. Or so I'm told. I hope I never have personal experience of it!

    Beware standard countersunk screws. Their heads are larger than the ones used by BL.
    The result can be, though you have torqued up all four wheel nuts the wheel is not clamped face to face with the hub, but only partially clamped leaving a gap between the wheel and hub, where the overlarge screw head is.
    If you are using alloys, the screw head will gradually eat into the alloy until you have a distinctly wobbly wheel that could easily result in snapped studs and consequent catastrophic incidents.
    If in doubt buy from Rimmer.
