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.

Motiva and Dave Rochau have ventured into the turbo Jet Ski arena. When it comes to getting
more speed out of your engine, there in no one better than Dave Rochau and
Motiva Motorsports. Watch, read and listen to some amazing video footage.
"Ricky T" Trevizo Pro open class runabout Jet skier show's how working with
Motiva Performance and Motiva Motorsports is getting more out of his Seadoo
turbo Jet Ski than ever before.
He is working with Dave Rochau, master tuner at Motiva and getting over
400+ HP out of his turbo jet ski. They
are still working on getting this Seadoo RXP turbo Jet Ski to over 500+ horsepower and that will be
amazing. Ricky T will be doing over 100 MPH when that happens and the
water gets read hard if your crash, so we hope that does not happen (the
crash that is).
Here is what Dave and Ricky T have done to his open class runabout Jet ski
