[Healeys] Tank Straps

The difference between early and later is not in length but in the threads
of the T shaped bolt that goes through the floor. Early ones are BSF
threaded.  If you can get a thread or two on the T bolt you can snug it up.
Maybe you need to use thinner padding underneath the tank. Get a big friend
to press on the strap and tank to help push the T bolt through enough to
grab with a nut. It took me three cycles. First with a Very thin washer and
tightened as far as I dared. Second with a thicker bigger flat washer. And
Finally adding a lockwasher.
Perseverance furthers.
