long time nothing new... again...

BUT

The Rotary is in place and is fixed with custom-homemade-engineholders on the sides.
On the rear the transmission stands on the modified crossmember section.

no bushings at all. Will see if I need them when I start the engine the first time.

----------------------

Another thing I thought about these days is the water pump. Caused by my turbo-manifold I have to change the Inside?? tube of the mechanical water pump.
The other way would be a electrical water pump (EWP). So I had to relocate the alternator.
I will build a bracket soon to fix it to the engine

First step building a bracket to install hoses directly to the engine.

----------------------

What do you think...

I want to use the EWP115 from davies craig.

Image

Would look like this system from "Greg E" from ausrotary.com

Or do you use other ones?

Today I reconditioned the 13B injectors. New seals will make a big difference on a old car/engine. I assessed this on my Altezza ... and this car is made 1999 not in the eightys!

"I will do my very best" :wink:

I haven´t the place to work on chassis and body at the same time.
When the engine starts und run well (as he did before the conversion) I can start to build Brakes, hubs and the rearend. After all welding and designing things are done the chassis will change place with the body and would come to a sandblast and powder coating shop. Hope to find a affordable one.


Thanks for your comments!

I´m glad to hear all the stuff works :tu:


Yesterday I ordered some stuff:
- Silicone hoses
- clamps
- fuel filter (BOSCH)
- fuel lines
- Davies Craig (electric water pump) EWP115 :mrgreen:

next week I start my internship at Porsche, 150km away. So I hope to have time to work on the project on the weekends. Maybe I can get some technical help from the guys there for my hubs and aluminum fuel tank. :D

stay tuned!

Hey J-tin guys !

I changed my planes slightly.

Hubs and other parts are in process on the CAD

But I want to check if the engine is really in the right position. So I asked some neigbours to help lifting the body to the chassis

Pics will follow immediately :wink:

Update:

So here you can see how the engine fit the body or the other way around ;-)

I think it fit´s nearly perfect. Shifter is max 5cm/2" behind the old position.
The handbrake have to be displaced 2cm/1", but not much work

Image

Image


Now I can install the radiator for adjusting

And here is another project which stands still for over 5 years.

My "Simson Schwalbe KR51/2" built 1986 in the German Democratic Republic.

Great ride!
50ccm, 2-stroke, 4 gears, original 6V -> now 12V with electric ignition. The only 50ccm-ride - beside the vespa from italy - which is allowed to do 60km/h. Others only allowed to do 45km/h ... officially :wink:

hey guys,

my aim for this year is to start the engine, mounted in the car, with the standard ECU.

So my coolant system is ready to cool.
I build all parts of aluminum, a Flange for In- and Outlet, an Overflow tank, 90° tube with third connection to Overflow tank.
I elimated the mechanical waterpump to get space for the Turbo.
So I used a Davies Craig EWP115 electrical Waterpump for the waterflow.
When I will change the ECU from original to Megasquirt I wanna use a Map with PWM-Out for regulate the pump speed.
To regulate the warm up without little or no speed of the waterpump I installed a Thermostat, which is normally used in the Lada Niva.
If this system wouldn´t cool the rotary down on traffic or under hard track conditions I bought a SPAL Fan
Only thing which is missed is a fan shroud which will come sometimes ;-)



The Turbo needs Oil Feed, Water Feed, Oil return and water return.
So I ordered some special made stainless steel lines with teflon inlay at a industry hydraulic firm.
Water feed comes from Inlet flange
Oil Feed comes from front plate
Water return goes to upper side of the radiator
Oil return goes to front plate/oil pan



I installed the alternator 180° turned in the front of the engine so it runs left instead of right originally.
Put it produces AC-Current which will transformed in DC so there shouldn´t be a problem.
I used a 460x10 belt to connect it to the crankshaft. very small
Also I build some parts for tensioning the belt of the alternator.


Another thing I changed is the oilcooler connection.
Originally its at the top and on the side.
Caused by the place I want to install the oilcooler there is a problem between the top connection and the frame.
So I cut the connection at the top and welded also on the side.
Now there is no problem between the oillines and the Frame.


At the moment I have to plane some weldet flanges and to hard solder my Oil return Flange which is made from copper and steel.


Pics will follow this week!

This is engine bay without alternator and Turbo. You can see the water In-/Outlet flange ant the Lada thermostat

The Alternator:

This is my selfmade "tension jack" for the alternator

Here you can see the Oil return line incl. fange to turbo (made of copper - beta version)

Another shot of the tube from turbo to intercooler which is normally underneath the right fender

Last but not least a pic from above

The Year goes by and I told you that I wanna start the engine this year. And it WILL start this year 8)

What I want to do before fire it up was to get the turbo hot side disassembled. But my "cold" torch couldn´t get so much power in this cast iron housing. So I decided to bring the turbo to the machine shop of my univeristy. They have oxy-acetylene burners which have a much more powerfull flame.
I headet it up for 30 seconds and could easy get the housing of. This is what I found:

Image


unfortunately I have no good picture of the turbine wheel before blasting. It looked abominably
But here you can see how it looks now!
- I know that this is not the best for the efficiency of the turbo, but it´s a turbo which was developed in the 70s. Which efficiency?! - When the car is complete und runs a year or two I want to swap to a GT3582R or a more efficient turbocharger, so no problem about this at the moment ;-)

Image

Image


The headshield was very carbonized. I only cleaned it up. I think the prolem is the "piston Ring"
(picture is after cleaning it from coking)

Image

Image


Because of the size of the turbocharger Mazda originally used a twinscroll turbo with a flapper door inside the manifold. In low rpm´s, when the exhaust volume is low the door closes the smaller inlet of the turbo to get higher gas speed into the turbine.
I can´t use this manifold caused by space or better no space in the roadster. So I cant use the full potential of the twinnscroll system.

Image


So I decided to get some mill work on the inlet of the turbine like some do on cylinder heads. Not as perfect as they, but I think better then original

Image


At Last:
Last WE I connected all wires and want to crank the engine. After minimum 3h of wiring and searching in diagrams I found the one wire which I missed the whole time before, but it was this one which connected the ignitorswitch to the battery :oops:
After that, it works ! I tried it without gas only for a checkup... and it WORKS!! :lol: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

So on Friday I want to fill it with gas and give it a chance ;-)
I will make a clip for you

Looking good! I love how you are thinking outside of the box with this build and I'm curious where you will end up :tu: .

I see you also own a Hakosuka. I didn't know there were any Hakosuka's in Germany! Do you have some pics of that car, I was looking for a build thread but I havn't found one :mrgreen: .

The sound is *JeremyClarksonMode* astonishing :o :shock: :lol: :mrgreen: *JeremyClarksonModeOFF*

And I think the quality is really good for a photocamera. It´s a EOS 650D :tu:


FYI:
What you can hear at the beginning is the BOSCH 044 fuel pump which lays near the windshield.
maximum distance to the camera is 1 meter
