[Healeys] My BJ8

I lost my 63 BJ7 to a whole house fire a number of months back. I owned my
BJ7 for over 30 years. I restored the car and it was beautiful. There was
nothing I would not undertake on the car.
I have replaced my 63 BJ7 with a 66 BJ8. I do love the "new" car. There
are differences between the cars and that is what I need help with. I need
to clean the overdrive operating valve and then adjust the overdrive
solenoid for proper operation.
My question is how do I remove the center console? I see the two screws on
each side of the top of the console where it joins the dash but there is
more to removing it. Where are there other screws/attachment points? Are
there disconnects for the switches or do I just made a sketch of the wiring
before I disconnect them?
I received just the ignition key when I bought the car. Is the ignition
key supposed to operate the glove box and trunk? My key does not operate
any of the. If not, I do not see numbers on the locks themselves so how
and where do I get replacement keys. I also assume there is a separate key
for the doors and I do not see a number on that lock either.
What other important differences between the cars that I should be aware of?
The list has been great with information and help in the past.
Thanks to all who reply.
63 BJ7 (deceased)
