Some people hear "rotary" and immediately assume everything under the hood will be different. But unless you're opening up the engine, there is very little different from what you'd find on a piston engine of the same era. Peripherals are going to all be what you'd expect to find. The biggest exception is going to be the metering oil system.
What was throwing me off was that the engine is rebuilt and someone told me that the Japanese cars had a separate oil reservoir. Thought maybe someone had rebuilt it that way, but it's a junky car and I can't see that effort being put into it
