Mazda 787B Startup - Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011
Warming up in the Cathederal Paddock on Sunday morning 3rd July 2011.
Loud? I've stood next to plenty of F1 cars and this was certtainly no
Although it has only a 9000rpm max engine speed, with 12 combustion cycles
PER REVOLUTION (unlike a 4 stroke V12 whihc would only have 6) this car
produces 108,000 combustion cycles per minute. That is 36,000 more than a
current 2.4l F1 car at 18000rpm!
This is the only real running 787B, there is however a second car which
sports the same detailing (even down to Le Mans 1991 driver names) which is
in much better (less faded, and less battle scars) whihc is used as a PR
car. This car was a static display on the Mazda Cars UK stand also at
Goodwood that day.
Mazda 787B Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011
This is the 1991 Le Mans winning Mazda 787B at the start line of the 2011
Goodwood Festival of Speed. You can get a good idea of the sound this thing
produced by watching the the marshal at the right rear when the car
Mark Ticehurst at the wheel.

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.
