If they are O/E ford ones, have a look at the outer conical ends and there should be a raised part number moulded on. Something like "86BB- etc. Then type that number into Google and you should find what model they were for and a supplier.

CBS also do universal ones but check that the max outside diameter as it may foul chassis parts if too large. Peter.

Not sure if Marlin used more than one type of rack but my 2004 Sportster used a recon rack from a Ford P100.

Have look at the dimensions in this ebay advert and see if they match your existing boots.

The Sportster shares the same basic chassis as the Cabrio which also used the Ford Sierra non power steering rack.
Its a safe bet yours will be the Ford P100.

These fit all models of Sierra steering racks, and at 9.99, you can't go wrong:
