    Hi Everyone, I recently was gifted a Marlin but am very in the dark on exact model it is and would love to know some parts lists or modern replacements etc and general service advice. The kit is mostly there and built but there are a few items missing. Serial number is MH4S9 S / 76330M on an old 'K' Plate.
    Any help would be very gratefully received. Thanks Mark.

    Hi Mark, welcome.

    In order to be able to help I need to know which car you have, the MH4S number you quote is the VIN number
    but I need the Marlin Kit number to be able to identify it, I am guessing it is a Morris Marina based Roadster

    On the front left side of the chassis, as per these pictures, please tell me and we can all be of more help to to you

    If you prefer not to put info on this public forum then email me direct or via P M from here (Notifications, top right)

    Mark has also posted on the Marlin Enthusiast's FB group, with photos, and it is, indeed, a Marina based Roadster.

    Mark, I've replied on FB but I believe this forum and the Members on here are the best resource for info and help, albeit not as instantaneous!

    Thanks to Jon & Ben I have the Fb pic, just need the kit number now !

    Mark, hope this will help you, it's one of the methods (and the one I use) :
    To add pix to a typed reply on the Forum, when you’ve finished the typing, leave the cursor where you want the pix to go, hit the "Go Advanced" button, and then the "Manage Attachments" button. You then use the "Browse" button to look for the pix you wish to upload, and having found a pic hit the "Upload" button, and then repeat this for as many pix as you wish to upload, then hit "Submit Reply" when you’re ready to do so

    Before adding them, you may need to downsize the pix if they are too big – if that’s a problem send them to me and I’ll do it for you and return them.
