Don't know about the width of a Marina axle, BUT if it's ok, then i'm convinced you'll have to cut off the Marina spring fixings etc and weld on the A40 ones. It aint not just gonna fit straight in Paul. Also, the prop to diff connection will undoubtedly be different. And the length might be a bit out.

you are right dave, no it doesnt fit its the same as a moggy rear thats why moggy owners fitted them, if i was going to fit a different axle it would be from a ford 100e as their are quite a few different ratios and the same width

Ah....100Es the same width :D That's the way to go if it's diff ratios wanted. They must be a bit scarce though ? Then again, there's plenty of ratios for the BMC axle :- 5.3, 4.5, 4.2, 3.9 & 3.7. With a couple of VERY similar ones up the high end, AND a VERY RARE 3.5 which was a Special Tuning option.
