I've been reading "Climax in Coventry" by Walt Hassen with Graham
Robson. Graham mentions that Jack Brabham fitted Climax Coventry
engines to about 150 Triumph Heralds, Austin-Healey Sprites and the
like. Any examples exist today?
He also talked about Donald Healey borrowing and fitting a 2 liter FPF
engine (180 hp) to a 15' Healey boat for a six hour race on the Seine in
Paris. The boat was piloted by Tommy Wisdom and the hull was holed
during the race by a partially submerged log. The boat sunk but was
located and recovered. The engine was rebuilt and sent to the customer
who had already purchased it.
