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.

Turbo Peripheral Port Start-up and Idle
To the Youtube 'tards: This was a quick first start up video before
everything was assembled. The intake plenum, tubing, and coolant lines were
installed after the bugs were worked out.
Mazda RX3 13B rotary turbo - Promaz Automotive
Ross' immaculate Mazda RX3 runs into the 9s for the first time. The new car
is powered by a Promaz Automotive 13B bridgeport rotary engine and aided by
a Garrett turbo and MicroTech EFI. Ross
has fitted an Albins gearset to the Mazda RX-7 gearbox. The RX3 was only
on low Boost this time out so expect
the guys to run a lot quicker yet.
