    Mazda RX7 Series 3 1985 Dublin

    Good stuff - few of us heading to Bray for cars and coffee tomorrow

    Check your engine mounts as well - the heat perishes them over time and the oil filling them dries out leading to vibrations up through the gearstick. You can usually tell by looking at them. changing them is easy enough by jacking up the engine a bit and you can access the nuts from the top of the engine with an entension or two

    I threw up a post on the FB page - a supplier has 10 full sets for $300 - from the US though

    WOuld be great if there was a more user friendly way to upload photos direct from a mobile device
  8. I found jp4mance the cheapest for plugs. Used to have a website but I think they have moved everything onto Ebay now

    buying your first rotary

    All of the 8's have a 1.3 renesis engine, they are only taxed as a 1.7 - the only difference in engine is between the 192 5 speed and the 231 six speed with the latter having extra ports. first call would be a compression test and take it from there. Read up everything you can before the rebuild and check out some useful videos on YouTube

    What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    Dwell times adjusted for the d585's and compression test done by Jamie. Normalised Front 6.61 6.65 6.98 Normalised Rear 7.35 7.6 7.72 Not too bad for an original engine with 110k on the clock. Should be good for many more miles under the new owner if she sells
