Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

I was reunited with ATB today.
Spent a nice afternoon with Harry Hayes doing a road trip in his ital to get some bits for his latest project. Cheers Dave again.. much appreciated.
Interestingly, it's a world apart in a 1.3 hls from my TC. Completely better in the handling dept.

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Box sadly didn't have a number . Torn to shreds from storage. Was BL though.
I'm guessing it came from an allegro as I believe that car was when BL went metric.
Perfect fit, just needed nuts. Soz

Re: RE: Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Being aquainted with a few running temperature issues myself, I find this interesting. So are you blaming an electric fan blowing or drawing air through the radiator for keeping the coolant temperature below 90C? The way I see it, that stat must be open for the fan to be able to drag the coolant te...

Re: RE: Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Well they were bought just prior to the Ital being released 1979. Might have been the only ones in the unipart brochure. Although the 1700HL estate had them. Added later to the Marina range after the original mk3 inception. Personally I prefer the thinner ones as the thicker were more easily kerbed/...

Re: RE: Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Just spent a whole 1 hour (plus a bit then) sanding down my wheels, ready to tidy them up with some rattle can zinc primer and wheel silver. Not tomoz cos I'm out. Maybe Saturday.

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Now fitted and working! I used a 12 inch fan and everything is a very tight fit. Only real problem that I encountered was putting the yellow fanblade back on to the water pump, because once the electric fan was fitted to the rad.....it can't pass the original fan blades. So I had to fit it back on t...
