since I work nights I tend to have a lot of free time at odd hours, so I thought to myself, HEY lets get a project car! so I did, not because I'm a particularly good mechanic or anything, so here it is, the engine is out and completely apart, soaking in some oven cleaner as I type, the rebuild kit is on the way, as is a porting template for the intake and exhaust ports (same effect as a bigger cam on a piston engine as I understand it) Next week I'll try to reassemble the engine if I can remember how and hope to god it runs. If you've never seen what the inside of a rotary engine looks like maybe this will be interesting? here's how a rotary works, my engine is a 13BT, it has two rotors also, the state of the garage pretty well reflects the state of my sanity. It's a complete mess now, oil, tranny fluid, and coolant EVERYWHERE, you can see the oil slick under the car. An entire bag of kitty litter still didn't contain it. I think the exxon valdez fucking ran aground in my garage.
