Yes, a full tank was used on the weekend. Which doesn’t mean anything as they chew the juice.
A short Night cruse with all the family. A couple of trips to Bunnings Hardware (just to set off some car alarms)
The Bridge Port is OK to drive I thought it might be painful. Can’t wait for another drive hoping there might be a car club run soon (I will have to join)
Still have a little bit of fumes, changed the breather setup made it a bit better. I think fuel injection and a new tank with internal pump might get rid of the smell. I know it just an old car and that’s how it goes but it will give me something to do. Air conditioning might be on the cards as well. :oops:
Lots of looks on the road while driving and a lot of people asking is it for sale

Thanks for the pump link that looks good.

I have been driving around my local area getting lots of looks :shock: . Took it out in the pissing rain to see if there are any leaks and to see how good the wipers work. No leaks, the heat/fan just keeps the screen clear. Actually enjoying driving the Bridge port on the street.
Still have a fuel smell can’t find the source so I guess I will have to speed up the injection set up and make a tank with built in pump. The PAC one looks OK but I just can’t bring me self to buy one from them.

Out and about

The standard air filter covers most of it.

Car looks absolutely sensational! The angel blue really suits the sedan shape. 8)

Injection setup looks good and will be great under an original air filter. I know what you mean about fuel smells.....my t shirt stinks of fuel after a decent outing in mine....I trialled a full sealed breather setup on mine and it made squat difference, so I put it back the way it was as it looks much tidier.

Thanks. I drive it least once a week still at the moment. My boys love it. Even if it is the Hardware.
Hope to start putting the injection on soon, I have a new tank with inbuilt pumps, new Teflon lines and fittings. Computer and wiring set out but not wired. Manifold need to be finished off with some match porting and vacuum lines.
Biggest problem is I like to dive it on the weekends, so no time to change it over.

Had a good cruise to Dave's and hope to get out on a club cruise soon.

Yes fuel smell is a Rotary thing but I really want to try to get the car the best I can for driving. The sound deadening and boom mat has made it good inside, no real droning noise. My 3 year old fell asleep the other day.

maybe you should get that fuel smell fixed sooner then later.

I've never had a rotary that you don't get out off smelling like a Gerry can

Ok been a little while. I drive the car at least once a week. Injection is nearly ready to change over, I just can’t take it off the road for the weekend because I want to drive it and I will need to tune it.
Trying to fit some wheels as well 13x9 Simmons off the race car with old 225/60/13 just fit in with a little spacer.

Still not sure on the 15 inch Simmons. I like them but, it’s just um, well every Rx3 has them

The 13x9's and old "A-Blocks" look awesome. Can't help think 225-50-13's might look even better again?

The 15's look ok, just not anything special or unique, I think the 13's just look that much more period.

I like the old 13" Simmons as well, any idea if they'd fit over the old common Volvo caliper conversion ?

I haven't seen A352 Yoko's in years, used to use them in the 80s and 90s. I wonder if they still make them.

Not sure if Yokohama Aust. stock them, but they are still advertised here and overseas at some tyre web sites, 215-50-13 and 235-50-13, now called Y352 instead of A352 like in the "old days".

Sizes are pretty limited, not sure on how 215s would fit on the front of an Rx3. Some mug has a starting bid of 1500 for an old set on eBay, seriously !

So do those old Simmons you have fit of the front of the sedan :lol:

I had my 14 month nephew pickup a hammer and start beating the car this afternoon, got a few good hits in before I realised what he was up to. I'm too scared to see what he did ! If I'm up to it I'm thinking of hassling you to go to the next cars and coffee at Terry Hills.

You can get a 235/45/13 semi slick (Kumho) you can find tyres but may have to be imported

Those Simmons are from a Group C car with out flares. the fronts are 7's. Well 1 is a 7 and the other is a 7.5, I think someone may have swapped them around for different tracks not to sure. So yes the fit under the fronts. They are early 8 bolt, 2 piece wheels, steel rims.

I have these which are the next type, 16 bolt, 3 piece alloys. I have 4 spot callipers under these. These are 13x7 and I am waiting on a quote for some more inners and outers.

Let me know the date, so I don't pull it a part that weekend

215/50/13's are pretty small in diameter compared to a 205/60/13 by comparison, so with the right offset you might be surprised how well they fit.

I saw that AO32R's also seem to be available overseas in that size, they would make for some great dry day runs up the "old road" to Gosford :twisted:
