[Healeys] BJ8 Rear Seat Pans

Thanks for the heads-up Steve. Sounds like lots of Kroil and maybe a little heat are called-for. 

How visible are the topside screws? Sounds almost like a worthwhile (premeditated) mod. My BJ8 is mostly original, but a Pertronix, spin-on oil filter adapter and the clutch slave cylinder bleeder extension have made life easier and, of course, they are fairly easily removed.

Two or three of the studs on both pans broke off the first time I tried to 
remove the nuts, so I'm one of those people who replaced the studs with the 
screws from above. For the nuts, I used "anchor nuts", which are riveted to 
the seat structure and provide some "float" to make inserting the screws 
easier. It only takes a minute to pull a seat pan for access to the fuel 
pumps (I have two), and I've found it also makes accessing the differential 
fill plug easier, as well as the fuel filter that I have located under the 
right seat near the pump.
