[Healeys] Tank Straps

The tank straps I bought don't seem to be quite long enough.  The threaded
fitting that is bolted to the boot floor of my BN2 barely protrude below
the boot floor to get a nut on.  When I look in the Moss catalog there is a
different part number for the BN1/2 tank strap and another for the BN4 to
BJ8 strap.  Do I take it the BN1/2 strap is a different length than the
later version? Of course the BN1/2 tank strap in the Moss catalog is N/A.
If the early straps are longer than the later ones, I will be in the market
for a pair, used or new.  Looking at the suppliers in the UK the tank strap
they list says it is appropriate for BN1 through BJ8 for one supplier and
another UK supplier just does not list the BN1/2 tank strap.  I don't think
it is safe the way the tank strap I have only has a few threads of
engagement holding it to the floor.  Any ideas on this subject?
