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...

Re: A Kiwis Series 3

Make sure the water pump and housing is torqued properly. The studs sometimes have a habit of breaking loose in which case you won't be able to get it tight enough. It might be worthwhile reinstalling the studs with new stud lock. Do you know what the torque setting is for the water pump housing nu...

Re: A Kiwis Series 3

Great progress! You'll definitely need to use the 3 bolt water pump housing from the 13B motor. Is it a series 5 or series 4? You can tell by the thermostat housing - series 4 is 2 bolt flange, where series 5 has a 3 bolt flange for the thermostat housing neck and a recess as the thermostat has an o...

Re: My first gen rx7 project

The lower side sills are still available new, but I don't believe the floor pan and chassis rail sections are. In the parts manual the front floor pan is only listed as an entire assembly. I doubt you'll be able to buy entire floor pans.

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

Sweet, any reasoning behind the internal gate or just because? Great question. I've been wanting to do this turbo conversion for 12 years, so let's just say I've had a lot of time to think about it and changed my mind a number of times. There's lots of pros vs cons for both style of wastegate. For ...

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

You can try PTFE tape. Also clean up the mounting face on the fitting boss and under the banjo bolt and sand down smoothly with 400+ grit if there are any pitts or nicks. Then replace the washers with new copper washers if you haven't already. The oil cooler lines are under very high pressure, so le...

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

Found a bunch of old pics of the car which reminded me how good it used to look. Jan 2009.jpg Dec 2009.jpg Dec 2009 2.jpg I also found the originals of lots of old photos from 2006-2010 which were lost when Imageshack was bought it and restored them to my AusRotary build log: http://www.ausrotary.co...
