Dave Sapp has a Standard Special engine in his Morgan. Dave is in Somerset, but doesn't post on TM.

It provided a challenge during restoration , is all I know.

Rob Davies (BuyBritish of this parish) has a 1947 Series 1 with I believe the Standard Special engine so another useful contact.

Possibly but it's a super rare engine, so the expertise will lie with those who have taken one on. Dave had to have a block repair after a crack appeared, and there were other difficulties due to its rarity.

John Merton (Australian Morgan Owner) knows a fair bit about them. Here's an article he wrote for Morganatica:

and there are a couple of technical articles on the MOCA website:
