  • Re: 1300 Marina diff

    On ebay there is a 1500 Dolomite diff. Item no 331135724306
    Assuming it is as described it will have a 3.89 ratio.
    That to my mind will be better suited to a 1.3 engine in a lighter, than Marina, Roadster.
    The differential centre and half shafts are exactly the same between a Marina and Dolomite
    MOC member since 05/97
    1984 Marlin Roadster SWB.
    1800TC, Unleaded ported head, stage 2 cam. Ford Type 9 gearbox, Dolomite Sprint rear axle fitted with MGF disc brakes.
    Three core radiator, Renault Clio vented front discs.
    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.
