Re: 1985 Series 3 restomod with s5 13BT on LPG, R&P steering

A quick little update which I thought you guys might like. I rebuilt and restored my combination switch. I have been hunting for years and it seems like all LHD combo switches are obsolete and haven't been available from Mazda for years. I even tried buying one from dealerships in Japan, to no avail...

Re: Panel availability

FCs are actually fairly rare and quite unloved in Australia. Unlike other models, there is very little aftermarket stuff available for them made locally. You can buy most FC panels brand new from Mazda though. Mazda New Zealand dealers are generally quite helpful with old rotary models. You won't be...

Re: The Latest 1st gen sightings

Electronic fuel flap release was introduced to Australian models in late s2 (around late 1982 from memory). I assume UK was the same.

I thought the S3 interiors had the dials for the heater controls on the dashboards rather than the sliders that are on the S2? Or is that just the American ones?
LHD only. All RHD kept the s2 style dash through s3. There were some minor differences but the general styling is identical.

Re: Windscreen washer mod

Cool idea and one which i had never considered. It would certainly clean up the engine bay. I had considered using the headlight washer tank as a reservoir for my water/meth injection. It has decent capacity. The headlight washer system has always puzzled me. The US never got it at all. In Japan it ...

Re: Rear end options for more power? (With UK Parts)

As noted above, a Torsen will be OK with 350hp. Depending on how you drive, the axles might be the first to go however. 26 spline series 3 axles are superior to the earlier 24 spline kind. Stronger axles are definitely worth considering. If you push past 350hp, it would be worthwhile consider upgrad...

Re: Kenlowe Fans.... ( and other electric fan stuff )

That beehive must make a massive difference (detrimentally) to cooling. I agree. I put the behaviour Thomas has observed down to the beehive cooler. The coolant circuit for the beehive is as follows: rear housing > oil cooler oil cooler > t-piece on heater return rail heater return rail > BOTTOM ra...

Re: Kenlowe Fans.... ( and other electric fan stuff )

When the Spal fan diidn't work the naturally air flow through the engine room will be reduced so you can get heat peaks iin the rear engine housings. Test airflow visc vs Spal are more interesting. Any numbers ? I can certainly understand your logic here. The viscous clutch fan is constantly moving...

Re: 1985 Mazda RX7....Its Black!

Great work, well done! Love the interior restoration work you've done. I'll need to many of these same things myself, such as repainting the back of the rear seat etc. If you ever ever do want to change your radio/cassette to the UK spec one, you know who to sell your one to ;) :D (a guy can try :lo...
