I had the same problem which I solved by doing the following 2
1: I tipped the seat back, back about 2 to 3 " at the top by relocating
the hinge brackets on the seat pan up a little.
2: I also made a new gas pedal linkage to make it so that my leg is
stretched out more. If you go to this web address
there are pictures of it.

it was about 45 and clear here in Atlanta yesterday and thought it would be
great to go for a short drive in the BN7. I have found that after driving
this recent restoration for any length of time...15 minutes to an hour or
more...my lower back takes days to recover. It is sore and tight today
after a 45 minute run.. I bought a small pillow to jam down in the lumbar
region of my back and that seems to help but the fatigue still comes, just
not as bad. I am reasonably fit..180lbs and 5'9" tall and only 50 years
What to do...and selling or giving the BN7 away is not an option. I don't
feel fatigued after driving the Jensen-Healey.
Looking for suggestions so this car doesn't end up sitting in the garage
I can't be the only one with this problem so please share..
Thanks in Advance,
