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.
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 RX-7 Spitting Huge Flames from Exhaust!
When I was driving back from an event, this turbocharged Mazda RX-7 FD3S passed me in a
tunnel. As you can see this tuned Mazda RX-7 FD3S was spitting some huge
flames from the Exhaust! Hate it or
love it, I really enjoyed it! :)

Mazda Rx7 4-rotor race car. The making of a Defined Autoworks Beast. [Offical Video]
Never before seen footage showing the assembly/start-up of our custom
4-rotor. It is the first 4-rotor since the 787b to use triple spark plugs
per rotor. It is also the first since the 787 to feature telescoping intake
manifold. Custom made slide throttle body system. A world first however is
the use of a center main bearing and 4-piece eccentric shaft. Quick specs-
9.7:1 rotors, lightened and race clearanced. Race main bearings, and race
rotor bearings, ceramic NRS 2mm apex seals. Custom stationary gears, Full
custom Peripheral Port in each rotor housing (defined auto), Aluminum side
housings for reduced weight. Needle roller bearing in the center housing.
