You will have to change the nipple and the nut on the end of the metal pipe from the three way/brake light switch adapter where it ends under the wheel arch. The Minor brake pipes have BSF fittings whilst the Marina are UNF so you cannot use the Minor flexible pipe.
Below is the flexible/solid brake pipe set up on my Marina/Minor disc brakes and they are all UNF threads.

Thanks Phil, that clears it up nicely.

I've got a pipe flarer so when it comes to it I'll make them to suit.

I see the marina flexi's are available from GH for around £13-£15. However your braided lines look a bit snazzy, I assume they've got to be made to order?

The brake pipes are off the shelf and are Goodridge Pt No: SAH0501-3P and listed for the Morris Marina. Comes as a set of three, the two front pipes and pipe to the rear axle.

I'll take a look. Thanks for your help Phil.

Would you recommend them? I've got a bit of doubt over modern rubber parts (bushes,seals and hoses) after I've bought "quality" parts and had them fail.

Would I recommend them - yes I would.
Goodridge brake pipes are the best and widely used on vehicles used in motorsport.
