I had to actually modify a perfectly good wrench to get the bottom inside nuts loosened.   A lot of heat and experimenting before I got it right and even then it only gave me enough purchase to probably get 1/16 of a turn of the nut! But loosening the nuts paled in comparison to getting those same nuts back on. Getting each nut actually located on the stud probably took one hour each and it involved using grease on my finger tip to hold the nut in place and try to turn it that first segment of a turn to get it started. Probably one of the worst jobs I have encountered in my years of working on cars. Brian Drab AHOABC    From: Leonard Berkowitz <DrBerkowitz at hotmail.com>

Subject: [Healeys] Carb removal    It has been thirty years since the last time I needed to do anything major on my BJ7 so my memory is not quite clear.  Can I remove the rear carb independently from the front carb? I have already designed a tool to access the lower hold down bolts.  If I remember correctly, I may have rebuilt and installed the carburetors when I rebuilt the engine, so access was not much of a problem.
