I have the '86 - '91 Haynes Manual. Its good enough.

It really helps on all the simple stuff.

The problem isnt so much the manual but all the tools or hands-on knowledge required to do certain things. The biggest problem I've had was a busted oil line that I just ripped out because it just wouldnt unscrew...

... and then Ah Choy showed how to properly unscrew the thing and I slapped myself for being so stupid.

opening a can of worms....

curiosity has set in... i'm still wondering why there isn't a particularly fast rotary in malaysia, let alone the existence of taboo and urban legend that the rotary engine isn;t reliable. i was a proud owner of a rotor for 3 years in sydney that ran with a rebuild i did in my living room.

i'm sick of hearing the piston guys saying that rotaries aren;t fast yadda yadda. but i can;t blame them since alot or rotors here do pop.

like i said.. i'm just curious

anyone care to answer this?

Actually ReRider,Alchemis and Woaychee cars are good examples of well built and mantained fd's.

sorry guys, but i have a question..

how much does it cost to rebuild a rotary engine?

or if i wanted to put in a half cut engine, how much would the total cost be?

thanks guys

Anyone interested in porting the intake & exhaust holes for FD?

Anyone wanting their RX to sound as if U're running high cams....blaa...blaa...bla....bla....

Work done on precision CNC machining center, all "LEFT-RIGHT" porting will be equal & symetrical...guarantee!! Only a balance porting job can bring out the full potential of your rotary monster.

Will upload photos of a complete FD engine we just completed....

Engine will be assembled & dynoed next week...

There is really a lot that goes into building them and it does take a lot of time and Over years U can learn the art it takes a lot of time to clean the parts as well I am sure there are Work Shop Manuals U can find
