XK140 FHC seat slider position

Would someone with a XK140 FHC be kind enough to measure the position of their outboard seat sliders and tell me where the rear bolt is placed. This is the bolt nearest the "B" post.
I am guessing that it is around 7" from the rear seat ledge, and 7" from the sill edge.
Thank you

Is that the Adams probe pictured? What is it based on? I will check the seat details in the morning, I just fitted new floors a month or so ago, have you done the same?

The Adams brothers used a 1800cc BMC motor tuned by Jenspeed. Only 3 ever made.
Yes, I replaced the floors and never bothered with taking the coordinates. I trust that yours were not moved or repositioned. Looking forward to hearing from you in the morning.
Cheers

Interestingly, I knew Jen/Jan quite well, His shop was in Salisbury close to the college I was attending so I visited often. Obviously you do not have the old floor panels, where did you buy yours from?

The measurements are, 9.5 inches from the hole to rear wall & 6.5inches to the outer sill edge

Thank you for the measurements William. I am having a problem with the 6.5 inches. The pilot hole ends up in the chassis frame channel. I would have to be around 6" in order to clear the frame and get a nut on the bolt. Could I ask you to look under and let me know what you see.

Ok, then if you look underneath you will see the re-enforcement bar that the seat bolts screw into, you can then go from underneath.
