little help
Submitted by mr.big pickle on Friday, June 15, 2007 - 2:11pm

i have a mazda mx-3 which of course i know is not a rotory vehicle but i've seen this old mazda truck at a lot that says on the back that it's rotory powered. first of all i would like to know if anyone knows anything about the engines in a mazda rotory truck and second of all does anybody thinks it would be a good idea that if the engine is any good to try and transfer it into a mx-3 ... it would be a first but i would just like to know if anybody thinks it would be worth it...

Dan,
Remember a few years back, there was this guy
called the Road Ranger. This guy drove a perfect
white REPU. He would cruise the highways helping
stranded motorists. (for a fee) His REPU was immaculate.
Although the news story about him was about
his good deeds; being a rotary fanatic, I was
more interested in his truck.

No it would not be a good idea to transfer the 13B old seventies
model rotary to your MX-3.
The trucks were built in the mid seventies; I'm sure the
truck you've seen probably has a rebuilt or swapped motor
cause if it doesn't, you surely don't want it. My 74 RX-4 lasted
in my family for over 10 years; at the end (even though it was
the original engine) it was fill the oil and check the gas.
Maybe your thinking because it's in a truck the engine has
more power and torque than a car; it doesn't.
Hey here's an idea: restore the truck, then you've got something.
