Guys,

had a serious offer (at least I think it was serious Smiley).

Feel like $10K is a pretty good deal for a Eureka of this std with the options it has.

The tyres have plenty of tread - easily roadworthy, probably done very few km's

I see the SA boys are keen - haven't any interest from there yet, but Vic, Tas and WA seem keen  Grin

Well we've got a fairly massive Blue Smoke problem coming out of the Rotary at the moment....
puzzigully is adament that it's never blown smoke under his ownership, and that it ran for 15 minutes before I collected it with no smoke at all.

I guess what I'm trying to determine is what could happen whilst in transit on a trailer that could change this.
Any Rotary experts around?

hi dennis-b, rotarys can be a little fickle when they have a bit of age on them. did you change the oil? did you refill with 20/50 as they dont like thin oil. is the oil injector pump still connected and adjusted right(1mm gap at idle), most of the hoons here remove it and premix 2stroke oil 100 to 150 to one. If its old the oil control back up seals (o/rings) go hard which lets oil past control ring(oil rings). i have just resealed my 79 rx7 with all new soft seals for $70 from TRANSEALS . no more smoke now unless i have a weak battery that wont crank fast enough (hard start) then it will puff for a bit (30 secs).
check out AUSROTARY.COM and a guy username BUMPSTART engine rebuilding. mazda parts are dam dear but can be had singulary if need be. full rebuild kit on ebay about $1400 from memory. if after full warm up it still smokes you could try some sort of seal softener (stop leak). if it starts good cold and hot but still smokes soft seals may be needed.  stick with it as when sorted they are lots of smooth fun, but they dont like to be run to hot or lean. easy warm up and cool down cycles are the trick to long life of a wankel.(original oil cooler is a must)   give it a good long run first before anything! hope this titbit of info is of some help to some one hey.

shipy59:
Thanks for the information. I don't believe the Oil has been changed or added to as yet... I might need to confirm what oil was used. The Oil Injector Pump doesn't seem to operate at idle per se... only when higher revs kick in it adds more oil (which is to be expected).

I'm begginning to think that my symptoms of Not much smoke Cold, but lots and lots of smoke when warm/heated up it may just be those Oil Ring Seals.
I'll complete a compression test tomorrow and see what I find out.

That sounds like a sticky/stuck apex seal to me.
                                                                      Yes it can be a result of under feeding via the oil injector and also possibly using the wrong oil, but sometimes it just happens on older rotories too. Susie turned the RX3 off one day and started it up a few days later with a stuck seal. It cleared itself a couple of minutes later but gave us both heart palipitations in the mean time. We rang George from Pac Performance who said the same. It sometimes happens.

George also had me set the injector permanently 1/4 open for general street use. We've done probably 100k with it set this way with minimal smoke and absolutely no problems. He frowns on us using Penrite and recommends Castrol (he would, he's sponsored by them) but you can't go wrong using the recommended Mazda product.

Lets see what your compression test says.

My Compression Test had Pulses of 85-90psi on 1 of the Chambers... 50psi on the other two.
This was undertaken with a Normal Comp Tester reading the Pulses on the cylinders as per the guide at http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/dec98/techtips.htm

As such we've pretty much come to the conclusion that the Apex Seals ete are stuffed and the Engine will require a rebuild.
(Which is pretty big $$$$ - $5000 or so I'm told)

Anyhow we've found a supposedly good recently rebuilt engine in the local area which we can hear and see running for significantly less than rebuild cost, so we'll see how we go on Monday regarding that.

We've run the motor at idle and at revs for probably an hour or so + now, can't drive it because the Clutch is Seized/Defective (anyone see that on the For Sale Description???)

Anyhow it's a "live and learn" exercise I guess... when it's fixed it'll be good... but I guess I shoudn't take Club Members/Forum Sellers at face value as much.

Was the gear lever installed when you picked up the car? If all the bits were there it would not have taken much for the owner to throw it back on. The fact that he has taken the time to re-fit the accelarator pedal which was not nessecary, but not the gear lever which would have been just as easy to fit and actually made the car drivable suggests that he may have intentionally left it off to hide the siezed/defective clutch.

The seller doesn't have many posts to his name, not sure how long he's been a member, he may have just joined up to sell the car. Unfortunately forum member or not you really can't trust anyone at face value, especially when you're parting with such a large amount of cash.
