Re: Estate+2

ah, I see the description now right at the bottom. Yes, it does fit well, Holden gearbox too! Be interesting to see how it all fits together under there.

Re: 10cwt van rear brake shoes

Are there any places that still do brake relining? That could be an option.

Re: 71 TC Coupe on Car and Classic

My white saloon TDT had a vinyl roof before my ownership but it didn't go down the A pillar, it stopped at the top window frame. Not sure if it was fitted from new but from the photos I have (taken around 2001) it looked professional.

Re: 71 TC Coupe on Car and Classic

I remember buying that issue of PC. Was it really twenty years ago?! I remember the first issue of PC I ever bought, it had art work of a Daimler Dart on the front cover.

Re: 71 TC Coupe on Car and Classic

Nice one :thumbup: Welcome to the forum :wave: I have a pair of TC sill trims in good shape though they are from a saloon, I think they are the same as the coupe but I'd ask someone who knows for sure first.
Look forward to seeing the progress!

Re: Are all A Series Sumps the Same?

ah, I had a feeling the half moon seal area would be different but couldn't find anything online regarding sump differences. Plenty of info on transverse Mini engines but not in line. I saw a couple of sumps for a Minor on the Bay but needed to make sure. I forgot about the extension plate! ...and y...

Are all A Series Sumps the Same?

I need to replace the oil sump on my engine I'm having rebuilt as it's full of rusty holes and was wondering if the 1275 Marina are the same across the range, Morris Minor, MGB etc even the A+?

Cheers in advance guys.

Re: Marina Phase 2 (SRV2)

The front looks almost Porsche like? Would be more suited to the coupe I reckon, just looks odd on the saloon.

Re: The old steering rack bush trouble

That happened to mine a few months ago. I've used a sharp self tapper to hold it now but make sure it doesn't protrude through the bush.

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

The dynamo is pretty new, I bought it when I was restoring the car. Could have gone bad but I haven't checked. The regulator box was also changed around the same time though it did feel very light and cheap compared to the original but seems to do what it's supposed to do. They either work or they d...

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Either way, she needs an alternator as all the lights on the car flicker like candles when driving. People think I'm flashing them and pull over! I know it's the regulator box clicking away but only does it when the battery is starting to die. If the heater is on and especially the heated rear windo...
