Re: The latest 1st gen RX7 sightings...

Haha, I'm a spotter not a stalker :D Hard to say which way this will go - it had obviously arch and sill rust, and border authorities here are very picky on that type of thing. Could have been bought in as a parts car or someone planning to do an expensive restoration. Either way, not a lot of S2 ca...

Re: 1986 Series 3 Elford Turbo

Well done on taking the leap. It's clear that this modification is as much to enable the car to live on in a cost effective way as it is to increase the fun element. 12a parts, especially housings are now becoming exceeding rare and expensive. I would also loosely class this as a period correct enha...

Re: Why does my rad fan fuse keep blowing?

Righto.. I'm a little bit lekky tekky so i'll try see if what I know can't unravel this a bit for you. First thing - Where is the fuse located? Should be near the battery but anywhere pre-Relay on the 30 terminal should be fine. Second - I agree with moving the Ignition trigger from the coils - I wo...

Re: Oil pickup pipe

Yep - all good.

The pickup is the same at they are both front bump sumps.

Only need to start modding if you went to a rear bump sump - think 13b into RX2.

Re: Building an RX7 LSD diff

Good work. Tooth pitch/width are also likely to change so a matched pair may still be the only solution?

Refer your pics of the S2 vs S3 CW/P set - although these are actually the same ratio, the tooth count changes.
