Manually cranking a freshly built 12A peripheral port engine. The engine is built with 3 window bearings, is doweled and has a shimmed oil pressure regulator. Ultimately it will run EFI and be turbocharged. Plugs are installed (listen to those pops!)

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
Peripheral port 13B idle
Homebrew 13B at idle; fabricated ports, header, intake manifold, etc, breathing through a Weber 48 IDA.
Trying some tricks with porting and header design and it only fired up for the first time about an hour ago, so I have no idea of power output, and very little desire to make unrealistic guesses.
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.
