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.
Mazda RX8 R3 - Sound of the Rotary Engine
This is just a quick demonstration of the unique rotary sound within the
cockpit. This is NOT a 0-60mph / 0-100kmh demonstration so don't go all
"omgz so slow" as I didn't try for that, it's solely for sound.
I'll post a 0-60 in the upcoming weeks.
Mazda CX-3 review : First Drive
http://www.caradvice.com.au/324106/?yt_desc - Read the article here.
The Mazda CX-3 has taken its time to join the small SUV class, but it
certainly makes up for lost time. CarAdvice was among the first media in
the world to drive the new CX-3 at the Anglesea proving ground in Victoria,
The engine line-up includes a 2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre turbo-diesel, with front and all-wheel-drive
Up front the Mazda CX-3 shares its interior design with the new Mazda 2,
which is no bad thing as it looks funky and cool.
The Mazda CX-3 sits between Mazda 2 and Mazda 3, wearing a price tag of
$22-32,000 when it arrives in showrooms in the second quarter of 2015.
Overhead Cam at 14K RPM
This video shows an operational cutaway of a BMW S1000RR — a 193HP
superbike — bumping against its 14,200RPM redline. A cam and valvetrain
at 118 cycles per second is an amazing sight (and sound)
