only the seller knows whether or not he knew what was wrong with it prior to the deal, at the end of the day his conscience will be his biggest enemy. and if he did know about it he will probably end up getting bitten later on in life so dont stress buddy, yes you have lost a lot of money, but just think, now you have all the reasons to build an absolute weapon of a eureka! plus you can do it all the way YOU want to. keep your chin up mate. a similar sort of issue happened a little while ago "gunna" he bought it found a whole heap wrong with it then lost hope. you have a piece of aussie history, if its really what you want then you should keep it and work through the problems until its a sound machine. unfortunately my circumstances have changed and i need the space, but now that you have yours make sure you keep at it, they are all unique.

keep your head up dennis,

Hi

  You can get a inport 13b turbo for about $1600. Have been told you can put a carby on then and they will work ok. May be a cheaper option.

Dennis sorry to hear about your engine issues but agree with others that you'll be very happy once things are sorted and at least you'll know exactly what you've got.  I bought a 13B Turbo Rotary with a view to replacing my VW engine. Now I'm sticking with the VW engine as I like the simplicity and have 2 VW engines, plus don't want the hassle of cooling.
I took photos of the 13B last weekend with some other bits and pieces so I can raise cash for a CB750 Honda restoration. Not sure where you are located but I'll put the following here in case you or anyone else is interested before it goes on eBay.
First up: I know nothing about Rotarys. A mate who manages a Repco store arranged for us both to get a 13B Turbo half cut ex-Japan about two years ago from his mate who imports them. Mine has sat in the shed for two years. I turned it over by hand for the first 6 mths and then just left it. No idea what it's like inside though he reckoned they'd both done around 40k's. My mechanic reckons it would most likely need the seals done and I was quoted $1500 by the Rotary specialist he recommended in Melbourne. I paid $1500 for it and hope to recoup as much of that as I can but am open to offers.
Also advertising my wheels - they're the blue ones on my black Eureka on Photobucket. New tyres on the 15 x 8" fronts and the rubber is hard but plenty of tread on the 15 x 10" rears. I think I paid $1200 for the wheels when I bought them from Simon and again hope to get as much of it back as I can. 4 stud so fairly rare and probably suit Baja or Beetle Custom buyers as well. Either way good luck. Regards, Slug.

Hey Guys,
I've picked up a recently rebuilt 13B Turbo (With No Turbo - Just Weber Carby) from a Rotary Experts in Melbourne.
That's getting fitted tomorrow (Wednesday).

Excellent Compression and No Smoke is too good to pass up Smiley
