I was able to tighten the rear bolts with an open end wrench. Nice clean
threads, brand new bolts. Probably more than required torque on 5/16" coarse
thread bolts in aluminum.

With any luck I'll never see this car again one I've delivered it to my
daughter in North Carolina. I bought it for her on her 16th birthday. She is
now 36. The work I'm doing is just like the items I purchase at my age:
everything has a lifetime guarantee.

Wouldn't mind having an MGB myself though to go with the TF.

  Ed, have you made the modification to the transmission crossmember that
allows you to tighten the bolts on the transmission? Basically,
  you drill 2 holes through the crossmember to allow you to pass a socket
through to the bolts.
