Five year old builds a rotary engine!!
This is a video of my five year old daughter Keisha building her first
engine, with a little help from dad of course! The engine is a sachs km3
with a pumper style carb, The engine is being fitted to a 1970's pedal car
and we hope to have it complete sometime in the new year,
Handbuilt 4-Rotor Engine
This was a project that took about five years of weekends to put together.
There was a lot of trial and error as jury-rigged parts were improvised and
revised, leaks were identified and plugged, and byzantine electrical
diagrams were decoded. It still does not run smoothly, as there likely is
a problem with the intake system that has prevented smooth timing at idle.
But she runs!
lots of people wanted to know where the E-shaft came from: it was custom
ordered from a shop in New Zealand.

Experimental Rotary Engines: Model 32
This follow-up to my previous videos summarizes the current design for the
benefit of those that are experimenting with Model 30 based engines. Model
32 is not yet finished but most of the mechanics are in place. It's been
dry run & tested for compression, friction & wear. Performance so far is
superior to Model 30. Completing the control electronics & firmware will
require more time.
Model 32 is similar to Model 30 (previous videos) except that: the rotors
are steel lined with graphite; the vanes pivot (rather than slide); vane
engagement is electronically controlled; seals, accuracy & fit are
improved; parts count & reciprocating masses are reduced; rotor phase angle
is adjustable to provide expansion ratios approaching 30:1; compression
ratios are adequate for burning vegetable/diesel oil using direct fuel
injection; the Lexan cover is replaced by a dimensionally more stable
aluminum reinforced plate glass. Fins will be routed into the exterior body
as needed for cooling. I should finish evaluating Model 32 by fall '07. The
next design (Model 33) inherits much from Model 32, except that it uses 1
rotor & 2 vanes.
The purpose of this open source program is to develop more fuel efficient
ICE's capable of operating on a variety of fuels for the benefit of our
environment, our economy & our future. This material is offered freely in
the hope that it may be useful & inspiring to tinkerers world-wide wishing
to improve Internal Combustion Engine technology. -Dave
Rotary Wankel Motorcycle modified km3 p port
This is a motorcycle I am currently working on this is its first start, it
is a honda MB100 with a sachs km3 wankel rotary engine which has been
periphial ported, So it is yet to be tuned etc, The mower in the front is
also a km3 powered unit, I will post more vids when its tuned and running
Aixro XR50 Wankel Engine Kart using GoPro Video Camera
Test session at Daytona Milton Keynes with Paul Granger having his first
taste of the very quick Aixro XR50 Wankel engine, lapping in 54.7 seconds,
over 1 second quicker than the outright lap record he previously set in
2004 on a MSkart Biland of 55.8. New tyres and a days testing would easily
see the Aixro into the 53 second lap times. 81mph on the back straight
(which is short!). A very impressive engine.
The Libralato engine is potentially the best small engine in the world; an
eco-engine for the 21st century. The asymmetrical rotary engine is
exceptionally compact, powerful, efficient, low emissions, low production
and maintenance costs, low vibration and low noise. The engine is ideally
suited for use as an onboard generator for the next generation of Range
Extended Electric Vehicles (REEV) currently being developed by major
manufacturers around the world, but is also suited for a wide range of
mobile generator sets and other small engine applications. For more

Montaje del Motor Renesis - Mazda RX-8 - NO REBUILD
Proceso de remontaje del motor Renesis de un Mazda RX-8. NO ES UN REBUILD
de Motor puesto que no se han cambiado ninguna junta de estanqueidad,
sellos de aceite o sellos de motor. Se ha limpiado todas las piezas y se
han reutilizado, con el propósito de practicar el montaje del motor y
almacenarlo de una manera mas compacta para en un futuro rehacerlo con
piezas destinadas a su uso en competición.
