Re: Mk2 1.8 HL Automatic update

The rings you’ve bought look like the ones I had- they have a tenacious grip on the rims rims! Nice looking too.

Re: Mk2 1.8 HL Automatic update

Very early Fiesta (MK1) had small wheels. Regarding weekly greasing I changed the trunnion greasing ends to 90 degree angled ones and set them to face forward. Looking back I should have put a cover on them to keep the dirt off and water out but it didn’t seem to cause any issues at the time- maybe ...

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

I had generic larger plastic ones on a Mk2 with the centre chrome hub caps which did get damaged and the silver did deteriorate. Replaced with same in stainless steel which was a lot better. Added to the car’s appearance in a positive way.

Re: Mk2 1.8 HL Automatic update

When I had a Marina in daily service I greased the front suspension trunnions every week; I don’t remember doing the top swivels so often. Once a year at the ‘annual service’ where much was dismantled, inspected, repaired/adjusted/ replaced against the next year of use I pumped grease through trunio...

Re: SPAMMERS

Thanks everyone who keeps the forum tidy. Only saw a few of these that were reported: didn’t pick up on any more.

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Changed 17ACR to 18ACR on the MK2 I had, also fitted highest rated battery that would fit. Family Morris 1000 dynamo system replaced with 11AC (50 or more amps) and then the 18ACR when the Marina went. Couldn’t break a dynamo system though and had the advantage you can change the battery with the en...

Re: About to tackle the gearbox, anyone got any tips?

Done removal and replacement and the boxes are IMO unreasonably heavy for what they are: it’s the bell housing that makes it heavy. Getting them back needed strength and assistance. I always replaced the clutch and thrust bearing whilst boxes were out- saved the struggle in the future. Also refurbed...
