    Is there a list of part numbers anywhere for those bits that wear out and have to be replaced from time to time. ie bushes, ball joints, track rod ends, brake cylinders etc? It would be a very useful thing to have as a reference.
    If not shall we start one?

    I am happy to asssemble it if those with the knowledge can supply the information.

    Cheers, Robin

    I have shared the parts lists for Mk1 and Mk2 Marina donor cars on Keepandshare. See my forum signature.

    Many parts are shared across the BL parts bins with other models especially Small Triumphs, but things like steering racks and clutch slave cylinders are Marina exclusives.
    Some creativity or extra research overcomes most issues.

    But feel free to start your own list.

    OK. Thanks. I guessed somebody must have already done it. I'll take a look. No.point in reinventing the wheel.
    Cheers Robin

    I made the assumption that you are talking Marina Roadsters.
    The Marina is poorly supported by dealers compared with Triumphs the two main donors.

    There was a company called Earlpart whose stocks were bought by Longbridge Motor spares.
    When you find them, their current stocklist is from 2016 and has not changed since.

    Its not helped by the fact that they do not use BL part numbers.

    Hi Steve
    I joined the keep and share but can only see dvla related stuff. The Marlin folder seems to be empty. Do you have to "friend" me? My username is martinclan
    Cheers Robin.

    I have found you on Keepandshare. Hopefully you can now see my whole archive or at least the Marlin section.

    its really easy.
