Re: Carb rebuild kit?

I've always considered this perfectly normal on a carby car. I leave the ignition on until I hear the gurgle of the fuel going up the return line to the tank, then pull the choke, couple of pushes on the pedal and fires right up.

Re: The Latest 1st gen sightings

the chap who owned it was called michael and is on the facebook group. I think he was after more than that, so be interesting to see if he let it go for that.

Re: The Latest 1st gen sightings

Re: newbie sa rx7

Is it the same car as the other thread? post up some photos on here in the for sale section. I'd love a '79.

Re: 84 1/2 GSL-SE figures

Sorry I got confused with the HB Cosmo that came with a 13B EFI, like the GSL-SE. The japanese only market Cosmo had loads of engine options, 12A 6port with carburettor (I have one of these engines), 12A turbo EFI, 13B 6 port RESI EFI.

Re: 84 1/2 GSL-SE figures

There were around 15000 GSL-SEs made I think, but that's only from what I have read online. I think all rotary engine mazdas were built in Hiroshima, non produced in America or elsewhere. Paint codes can be found on the forum if you do a search. There was a Japanese market only model of the Savanna ...
