IIRC The FWA Coventry Climax fire pump was 1100cc The FWB was 1500cc. I had both as working fire pumps, the FWA was a hand start and the B was electric. They were beautiful engines but very expensive to repair and quite tall compared to a X flow Ford. I sold them to a man building a replica Lotus 6 when I stopped needing them. The B would have been good in my Roadster. I was told that they were best suited to running flat out, which I once did for 5 hours on a pipeline job, no problems.
