Austin Healey Ruddspeed Engine Serial Numbers

Does anyone know if Healeys fitted with Ruddspeed engine conversions have different engine serial numbers to identify them as a Ruddspeed conversion ?

Ken Rudd, founder of Ruddspeed was a period "aftermarket" tuner and performance parts manufacture. Much like Saleen is to the Ford Mustang or Hennessey is to Corvette, Ruddspeed had no direct association with BMC or Healey Works. So there would be no special serial number generated for these upgrades.

Dougie is correct.
The only thing was coming with the kit was a plate with the serial number of the kit/conversion like this.
This picture is taken from my car kit.
