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.
