Lola's First was written by David Pratley. Unfortunately, the hard cover edition is out of print and is worth something north of $200. There is a soft cover version of the book (which i bought a couple years ago) that might still be in print. If not, once Jack is done with my copy i can send it south, but i'm sure Joe will respond sooner than later.
As for the Climax dimensions, i've got an ad for the FWE which has dimensions, but it includes the breather on top of the cam cover. So, the overall height is 23 1/2" and length is roughly 22 1/2". The breather is about 1 1/2" tall, so that brings the over all height down a bit, and the length thats listed on the brochure includes the flywheel but not the very tip of the crank pulley. I can verify all these on the weekend if needed (thats the soonest i'll be at the garage).
Love those tires. What are they? Most of the builds have tires that are way to wide. IMHO...
The tyres are vintage race Dunlops, they look amazing but cost a small fortune. I wish i could afford them for my car, but for the time being i'll stick with the very inexpensive Firestones.
