Some info needed on old school stuff.

I just acquired a Rotary Engineering Engine, I wanted to find out if anybody still have one of these and to find info on these famous builders. It's a mid 70s 13B 4 port. It has a lightweight flywheel with built in counterweight, from what I have been told that is rare enough alone. It's a streetported engine. Still has a faded Rotary Engineering sticker on the middle plate.

I also have the dual 36DCD Rotary Engineering Setup that is all complete but I need to pics to bolt it all up. If somebody has some instructions or pics, it will be very appreciated.

This is a Dual 36DCD Rotary Engineering on a 12a. Sorry the pics arent the greatest. I would take more pics but the engine is out of the car and the carbs are off. But I gues PM me and I can try and talk you throught the install its pretty simple.

I think I have one of their catalogs from back in the day. Nothing terribly special except the porting. engine is built or rebuilt just like any other rotary. carbs are hard to find parts for these days but they are out there. this setup was a bit tricky to tune as I recall. should work fine though

On Rotary Engineering, you can contact Mariah Motorsports in Santa Barbara... this is where original owner and founder of Rotary Engineering, Dr. Wayne Graham hangs out these days. He has a nice stable of rotary race cars there, and is there most days playing with his Rotary toys!

805.965.5115

NOTE: He doesn't work there, he just runs his race team in conjunction with Mariah.
