[Healeys] Tank Straps

Kilmartin also sells the tank straps and they only list a number for all the models. I checked the AH Spares catalogue and they list only one model of straps and it shows it is for the 6 cyl. Only. I am currently working on a BN2 and removed the tank straps as they were in poor condition and outwardly, they look the same as all previous ones I have seen.

Subject: [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?
