The Mazda Rotary Engine Part 1
Educational film by Toyo Kogyo about the Mazda Rotary Engine. Shows how the Rotary engine works with comparisons to the Piston Engine. Also shows the Mazda RX500 test vehicle on a banked circuit and the Mazda Cosmo Sport (or 110S). Originates from the late 60's.
Full mod 30cc watercooled Homelite engine
This is another one of my full modded engines . By looking at it , you would think it has a full crankshaft in it , but it doesn't , it has the half crank. Great engine with a lot of torque.
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
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
