Remanufactured Rotary engines!!

Good news boys and girls. We are proud to announce reman engines starting as cheap as $2700 plus your core unit. They all have machined flat housings and are balanced and assembled by the owner of our establishment, Rick Engman who has over 30 years of rotary building experience. Most of you have already heard some of the story so I'll just summarize: He has probably built more championship winning rotaries than anyone on the planet and his engines have won their class at LeMans more than once.

So back to the topic at hand. We are offering the basic rebuilds starting at this price. There is a lot more we can offer but I'll cover that later.

Here is an example: This is a 4 port Renesis available TODAY.

It's not always easy to keep pricing in this zone, even for stock rebuilds. It really depends on the condition of your core but we do the best we can.

The most tricked out NA Renesis could cost more than $6000 including a number of competiton parts like ceramic apex seals and a much more efficient water pump, extensive port work, balancing and blueprinting.

Engine dyno break-in is also available.

Paul.

We are working on an improved pump. We have built them for some in the RX8 racing community but have found a shortage of some integral parts. That being the case we are working on an infinitely better design. We are currently looking at the manufacturing costs.

It's not high tech like electric or anything, just a far superior design. More efficient.

Word by Feruary doesn't sound difficult. The finished product, that could be another story. I'll do my best.

That's a good question. From what I recall from conversing with the man, they aren't in great shape, especially the springs. The side seal clearances tend to be excessive and Rick uses a competition version that is longer for the clearances he prefers.

Just for the record, if brillo ever buys one of these, it's $2500 for him!

This is cool Paul. A rebuilt Renesis by Rick Engman is a dream come true at $2000. It's still hard to find used cores at that price and after you buy new seals and rebuild them it isn't even close. Then again, a newly built engine has perfect seals so it's ready for me to open it up, port it, and put it right back together again!

Fred,

I'm glad you likey. These, at this starting price use their share of used parts as is the case with those from Mazda but they are checked thoroughly and Rick's understanding of the criteria definitely exceeds that of the builders doing it for them in the USA. There are also things he does that don't get done practically anywhere else.

Paul.

Something like that. One of the things he does is: When he installs new bearings they are lapped in on his lathe with a special compound to break them in. It's rigged up to hold the rotor and spin it while the shaft is inserted.

I've seen Paul Yaw do the same thing. He basically "trues" them so they are perfectly round. It doesn't seem to matter if there is any copper showing on the bearing or not as the bearings never actually touch. That's what the oil is for.
