Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Gave car a good check over as it has not moved for 6 months and hopefully it will be coming back home next weekend Yey!
Brakes and clutch perfect and got oil pressure up before firing.
Needs a good clean and hopefully I can use it on good winter days.

Re: TC Jubilee 1973

"It's a beauty. Came from Aberystwyth but had been in the West Midlands before that from what I can tell. I had to have the driver's seat welded as it had collapsed. Also had to sort out the electronic ignition (optronic) and carbs refurbished and turned. Running sweet as a nut now." This was the ca...

Re: TC Jubilee 1973

Are so your the new owner of Dave Richardson's Jubilee which was fully restored! The one with the white stripe tyres.
That one should be a nice solid motor now.

Re: TC Jubilee 1973

What torque are you using to do up the wheel nuts? Only should be about 25 to 30 foot pounds from memory as they should not flatten the natural spring cone in the pressed wheel as this helps keep the wheel on the hub. I thought Rimmers had them? What Jubilee have you got or what is the number plate?...

Re: Wheels

David beat me to it. Stainless all the way. don't have to worry about them again. Chrome plated ones last a year before they show signs of flaking.

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Are the floats intact ie. not split or cracked as this would let in petrol and they are no longer a float.
I don't think I could set the height on mine as it was set by the needle alone. But been a while since I took the top off.

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Should be able to re-jet the float lids as it is the needle end which wears not the lid.
the needle end gets a groove worn in it and then either shuts off to late or not shuts off completely.

Re: Drive train oil seals

Hi Adz, Just don't push the seal fully home so the lip uses a new part of the shaft. also cross hatch the shiny surface with fine wet and dry to help the seal bed in.
Cheers,
Paul.

Re: HSBC and British cycling advert yellow marina coupe

Is the number plate real though - JAS 338? I expect it was on for filming as it comes up as a Green Austin 1956 which is still on the road which is odd why they used that one?

Re: Insurance agreed value

If agreed valuation is taken out and the car is lost beyond repair and no equal match can be found as a replacement then they pay the agreed value as this is a separate item on top of the standard insurance. No point having it if they don't pay out. Also I had the same issue with Adrian flux, went t...

Re: Mumford Marina Badge

Hi David, my windscreen was £114 but I guess they will be a bit more now. that was for a Laminated Sundym spec with green top tint. They could do green, bronze or blue top tints. they also baked on a triplex mark on to make it look more original. Be sad to see it shut down as I doubt any other place...

Re: Mumford Marina Badge

That would be a bad thing as it will mean no more custom windscreens - Do I get a spare made?
