I don't think it is a particularly good engine either.

If I remember correctly it started life as a small engine in a Triumph Herald has 3 main bearings and grew and grew.

I had a twin carb version in a Dolomite 1500 HL. It did not seem to be as sporty as suggested mine did not like prolonged high revs and eventually threw a rod through the block. Though I was just 21 at the time and driving it like a poor mans Dolomite Sprint.
