Re: Rexanne!

So the latest development is that the hydrocarbon emissions have crept up, so something I'll need to look into. (Hydrocarbons were 688 at the last MoT, but over 2,300 yesterday!) This means there is a fair amount of unburnt fuel leaving the engine and going into the exhaust. Really not sure where t...

Re: Rexanne!

the mazda 1000 hasn't sold... I offered him my white RX7 for swaps! Shame, that would have been a good fair swap I'd have thought! The owner was definitely dreaming with his valuation of the 1000. Especially as I know he bought it in 2012 for £1k, so basically thats FB prices, maybe worth £2-2.5k n...

Re: Rexanne!

I'm still alive. I come and lurk here once in a while, see how everyone projects are getting on :) Not so much as I used to though, as James mentions, I'm currently immersed in a 70s Suzuki t500 project, and it was the joy of two stroke bikes that lead me to rotary in the first place. I did try to b...

Re: Gearbox swap for MX5/Miata

Yeah, as long as you fit the circular speedo gear from your S3 gearbox to the mx5 output shaft, the cream/purple gears visible in the picture I posted, then you can use the normal your original speedo drive. The mistake I made was that there are some internet sources that say you can mix and match t...

Re: Gearbox swap for MX5/Miata

I've built a hybrid mx5/rx7 gearbox, though as mine was to fit a rotor into my mx5 it wasn't quite the same hybrid as you're talking about. All the mx5 5 speeds, from '89-'05, will work with Rx7 s2 + s3 and n/a s4 + s5 boxes. Each box is made of 3 main sections, the bell housing, gear set and the ta...

Re: Rexanne!

Nice to see the old girl looking well 8-) Keep an eye on the filters on the ITBs. I had some piper cross foam filters fitted and it managed to suck so hard that it torn the top off the filter. I found it suck down on the throttle plate, which is why I'd swapped back to the classics tights as air fil...

Re: Hello, from London!

Welcome aboard. 8-) You soon get used to the steering box, after a few weeks you'll forget it's anything other than normal :) The series 1 and 2 cars have a slightly better steering boxes than the series 3 cars. Also it's well worth putting some time into adjusting the steering box and make sure all...
