Northern California Rotary shop thread

As stated. The old thread is down so i'm making a new one. The only ones I remember were...

Rick's Rotary in Pleasanton - http://www.ricksrotary.com/

PR Motorsports - http://www.prmotorsports.com

Forum member Karack - I can't recall if he has a website, but you can search for him.

Please post up any Northern California rotary shops that I missed as it's probably a lot.

Search keywords: rotary repair shop shops turbo tune rebuild port reman re-manufactured engine

Thanks guys!

My buddy and I do rebuilds from home (we are located in Oakland and I am currently looking for a shop to rent).
Budget rebuilds starting at $1800 short block,
New apex seals and O rings.
We also offer removal and installs and other mechanical and diagnostic work for rotary powered cars.

I met a guy tonight on highway 9 who says his name is Ivan, he said that he works on rotaries, and is well known in the community, has anyone hear of this guy? Is he legit? I live in the south bay, he said lived in Sunnyvale.

Sorry Deus,
I just dont Like working on AC systems except for removing them.
There could be a few spots you sprung a leak from starting from the most likely to least

Front AC condensor located in front of the Water Radiator

Remove each line and check the ends for leaks and cracks.

Broken or blown O rings

Bad compressor

ECT.

Put some pressure into the system and listen for leaks,this is the first way I would check.

I drove my RX3 up to Willits last weekend... Is the rotary scene big at all in your area?

Ivan's been around forever and he is well known in the Bay Area. Pretty honest guy that does good quality work. He's the guy with the FD in his living room!!! I sold him one of my S5 TII's a few years back and saw it for myself. Sure enough, under a car cover in the middle of his living room was a FD that still had the new car smell!
