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.

A bunch of idiots decide to argue with the officer during a routine traffic
stop, if they would have just complied and been civil to the officers, they
wouldnt have got a fine for running there mouths off :/ Great Job, loosers.
Rotary 20B turbo RX7 - Dyno & track
Built as an all-round event's car, Charles' Mazda RX-7 has undergone
serious chassis and engine changes including a Promaz Automotive
bridge-port 20B rotary engine. Boost
comes from a Garrett turbocharger while
the engine runs on methanol fuel controlled by a MicroTech LT16 computer
and LTC dash logger. Backed by a Jerico 5-speed dogbox, the clutch was
suffering on the Dyno
as the Promaz team got the car ready for Performance Car Mania. [
