Part 12: 13B Rotary Engine Rebuild - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
Just as I promised last episode, it is finally time to build the engine!
Part 12 of my RX-5 Cosmo restoration covers the entire process of building
the 6 port 13B Mazda rotary engine. While this engine is a hybrid of GSL-SE
RX-7 and Cosmo parts, the process is the same for any rotary from a 12A to
a 13B NA, 13B turbo, 13B-REW or any
other variant of the 13B. This video shows the whole process of the engine
build, starting from measuring the rotors and covering everything else
including clearancing the side seals, assembling the rotors, complete
assembly the short block, setting the eccentric shaft end play and
installing the front cover and everything underneath it. It's probably the
most complete engine build video outside of what you can buy from the
vendors, and as such, is an hour long. After this one, I'm going back to
videos under 20 minutes. But for now, grab a beverage of your choice, sit
back, and enjoy.

2015 Mercedes - Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept - Official Promo
On November 20th 2013 (local time), the inaugural model in the Vision Gran
Turismo project, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, was revealed at
the Mercedes-Benz Research and Development Center near San Jose,
California. The producer of the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi, was
in attendance, sharing the satisfaction of witnessing the unveiling
together with the Mercedes-Benz staff involved in the creation of the car.
Following this, the AMG is scheduled to be transferred to Los Angeles where
it will be displayed at the Mercedes-Benz booth on the opening day of the
LA Auto Show.
In collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo, Mercedes-Benz has come
up with a striking sports car that features gullwing doors and some
seriously sensuous curves. The image the design team had in mind was that
of a big cat closing in on its prey, and this has been realised in both the
elegance and sense of agility and alertness in the completed model. The
shape of the front grille is modelled on the classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL,
the winner of the Carrera Panamericana in 1952, a race famed for its
unforgiving conditions. However, the grille differs from the classic model
in being made entirely from LEDs, capable of lighting up independently in a
variety of patterns .
The body is distinctive chiefly for its impressive curves and powerful and
prominent fender, both of which follow firmly in the tradition of
Mercedes-Benz's impeccably proportioned sports cars. The car pays homage to
classic competition cars with features that include the use of trigger
catches to fasten both the bonnet and rear hatch. It is also equipped with
a moveable rear wing. The chassis is made from an aluminium spaceframe with
carbon fibre components, meaning that its weight is reduced to 1385kg (3053
lbs. ), significantly lighter than normal for this type of sports car.
Underneath its elongated bonnet, the AMG has an optimised 5.5 litre V8 twin
turbo engine, boasting an output of
585ps (577 BHP) with a substantial torque of 800N-m at 2000-4500 rpm. With
its ultra-light body, the AMG achieves a power-to-weight ratio of
2.37kg/ps. The sound designers for the AMG have come up with an elegant
specially-tuned Exhaust note for the
eight independent Exhaust pipes which
have been integrated into the tail lights. Rival drivers will hear this
strong and distinctive engine roar as the AMG races past them.
With the worldwide release of Gran Turismo 6 on 6th December , you will be
able to get behind the wheel of this incredible car, a revolutionary model
that introduces Vision Gran Turismo to the world*. Get ready to experience
the sports car of the future, brought to you by Mercedes-Benz.
Vision Gran Turismo is a project where the world's leading automobile
manufacturers develop exclusive concept cars for fans of Gran Turismo. The
AMG is the first in a series of audacious and ambitious models that you
will not want to miss.

Info from Wikipedia : The Furai officially debuts at the 2008 North
American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Furai (風籟, Fūrai?),
meaning Sound of the wind, is the fifth and last of the Mazda Nagare line
of concept cars that have been made by Mazda since 2006. The chassis is
based on the Courage Compétition C65 Le Mans Prototype that Mazda last
used to compete in the American Le Mans Series, two seasons previously
and is designed to use E100 ethanol fuel, it is powered by a new generation
3-rotor wankel engine that puts out 450 brake horsepower (340 kW). The
engine is developed and built by renowned rotary tuner, Racing Beat, who
also built the car's rotary-shaped muffler canister.
The car bears the #55 number that of its 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans winning
ancestor, the 787B. Unlike many concept cars, the Furai is fully functional
and is currently being tested at various tracks. It has run at Laguna Seca
Head designer, Laurens van den Acker, has stated in an interview with Top
Gear magazine that there are possibilities of the Furai being used for
racing in Le Mans, and he also has strong hopes that the car could be
brought to the market.

MAZDA RX7 Rotary Engine, How It Works
MAZDA RX7 Rotary Engine, How It Works
The MAZDA RX7 rotary or Wankel engine is a marvel of engineering. It has
won more races than any other vehicle in its class. Rotary engines develop
a great deal of power for their weight (power to weight ratio). They're
also able to develop high RPM bursts like no other internal combustion
engine. Learn the details of it operation, how the rotor transfers power to
the output shaft, what it the stationary gear set, what is the rotor to
output shaft ration and relationship. Get all the specifics on the rotary
engine's operation here in this video.
Presented using advanced software CG animation technology to help you
understand. Part of our Automotive Technology Rotary Wankel engines and
MAZDA RX7-RX8 series shown here on this channel. Enjoy...
