12A Rotary Bridge Port KE30 Corolla First Startup
This is the engine from my Dyno Vid. Its finally installed
in the car. The engine was run in and tuned on the engine Dyno.
It was a bit smokey until I drained the fuel and filled up with fresh fuel.
I used to over premix the fuel so i suspect that the oil had sunk to the
bottom of the tank as the car sat engineless for over 3 months.
All seems fine. No oil or coolant leaks. Temps are fine with the new PWR
Radiator and SPAL 16" fan. The PWR oil cooler is also working a treat.
Just have to sort out if my oil pressure gauge is reading low, or if the
multi-outlet block i have it mounted on is the cause of the pressure being
50psi on startup and not 100psi like in the Dyno clip.
Just have to spend a few mins getting the idle sorted as you can probably
This was the first startup in the car, so i was holding the camera whilst
checking the car over for leaks and temps etc.....so please excuse the
Varex on ROTARY engine 12A Bridgeport.
Testing the varex muffler out on a 12A bridgeport rotary engine on idle.
Closed, the Db level will reach around the 100 mark on throttle. Open it
will exceed 120 Db on throttle.
