Oh, ok. . Either works, unless you're using incorrect hardware but what do I know

Using chrome and can't see pics either.

Dual Efan from a 1st gen toyota MR2 might work ok. Thats what fit in my SA with no issues.

Poof. Now they don't work for me anymore either. Damn Picasa.

Anyway, I got a fan from Charles / Johnny. Looks like it should be a winner, and slim enough to be used as a pusher.

Hey DJ. . . I've been, somewhat, "on the prowl" for something old. . . think I could creep on you at some point and check these things out? Never seen one in person. . .

Anytime brother. These are the rarest of the rare for vintage Mazda rotary. Hell it's probably easier to find a Cosmo 110s than these ugly ducklings.

That being said, I do know where there are a couple in GA......

You don't have to get a full restoration project, it would be cheaper if you didn't do that.

Just a thought. . I'd like to see more out there

Update- because I'm bad at this.

Gauges installed for water temp, oil pressure
E-fan installed
Rear trunk seal 'lip' that was rusted cut out and new metal welded in
Stock steel wheels refinished

Some thing I still need to, or would like to do prior to DGRR.
- Charles is going to rebuild the carb again with his fancy new ultrasonic cleaner. Rode in his truck with the same carb cleaned this way, and holy fuck it pulls. My secondaries aren't working.
- Need a dual alternator pullet/belt
- Debating getting a rebuilt PS pump. They are cheap, and it would be nice to have since running the power box manual is a pain.
- clean up some more shit, find a way to get some tunes in her.

Oh, and cut out this catalytic converter and weld in a straight pipe. Already has 2 mufflers on it, and that's enough. lol
