  2. On that size, yes; but which way do you want to orientate it.

    Lay it flat so it’s 140 high
     
  5. On that length, if it's just supporting the bricks over a doorway, then you could go for a standard size 100x65 from Wickes. But if it were supporting a beam in the centre of it, then yes, set it 140mm high.

    For 140 high, use two 65mm lintels as it will be cheaper and easier to lift.
