Australian Marina Brochure

I recently bought a couple of Australian Marina brochures, one a comprehensive 14 page booklet, and the other a truncated 6 pages in a 3-leaf foldout format. Have scanned the 14 page booklet into a rather large 34mb pdf file (not recommended to open over a dialup connection :o ) Australian Marina Br...

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Got the driver's door assembled. Had to remove the quarterlight window and weatherstrip I put in the other day, because I forgot to put the windup glass in first - doh! Then had a struggle to get the new outer weatherstrip on, had to resort to a screwdriver and wallpaper scraper in place of the five...

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Managed to get the outer weatherstrip installed, had to fit the clips to the seal first, then push the seal down against the door until the seal lip was pretty much standing upright, then used a wallpaper scraper to lever the seal lip back up over the door edge. Looks like a snug seal now. Then fitt...

Mk1 Coupe Rear Quarterlight Hinge Rubbers

Were the hinges and rubbers for the opening rear quarterlight windows shared with any other BL cars, or any other makes? The part I am trying to find is the "Hinge Locating Rubber" that fits into the B pillar, one for each hinge. Item 18 in the illustration from the Australian Parts Manual. Marina r...

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Been working on the door seals again. Had another stab at the outer weatherstrip, but the 12mm clips don't seem to be long enough, or the strip is too short. Either way, managed to get a clip on by pushing the weatherstrip down almost flat, but then the rubber popped back out. Might have to see how ...

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Took my "wellbeing day" off work and spent it in the garage. Refitted the chrome exterior door handle, instead of the black van handle it had. Put a replacement rubber on the opening front quarterlight window, and replaced the inner weatherstrip and channel rubber. One of the spring clips came off t...

Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Bought a copy of Wheels Australian Motoring Yearbook 1975, for the road test of the Leyland Marina 262. Leyland Australia followed BL's example and sent poor pre-production examples to the press, so it was descibed as "has good looks, sparkling performance, outstanding economy and handles like a dru...

Re: VAN TEMPERATURE GUAGE

Did the van have a temp guage as standard, or did it just have a warning light like the Mini?

Re: T-Shirts: Retro Designs

Just want to check, the design is only printed on the front and the back is plain?

Could be a market for a "Leyland Australia - Anything but Average" shirt. There's a big owners club for the Leyland P76.

Re: Old article

A real shame they didn't release the wagon in Australia, would have been a great load hauler with the E6, should have sold well too.
