1. Will any rx bellhousing bolt up to any mazda rotary engine,eg.a rx5 bellhousing (by itself) will bolt up to a 10a,12a,13b and a 20b?
2.Do all mazda rotary endplates have the same bolt up pattern
3.Are all mazda rotary endplates the same?
4. Will a mazda piston bellhousing bolt onto a 13b
5.Will a mazda piston bellhousing bolt onto a rx5 gearbox
These questions are probably stupid to most,but im a newbie to the rotor scene and any help would be greatly appreciated
1: pre 74 (twin dizzy 12A and 10A) will interchange across motor to motor, as long as they are all pre 74, and 74 onwards (all single dizzy or no dizzy) will interchange, all the way up to and including the RX-8 renesis, and 20B.
2: same bolt up pattern as in?? no, bellhousing pattern is different pre and post 74 (not sure on exact changeover date) and through bolt patterns are also different twin to single dizzy, and even amongst single dizzy, some have more bolts than others, although all the holes that are there will line up, I think 17 or 18 thrubolts??
3: nope, different years have diffferent bolt patterns and port sizes, 12AT have tiny primary ports, 13B-REW have huge secondary ports, others come in between somewhere, depending what car and country they are from.
4: no, bolt patern is completely different, not to mention piston starter goes in front side of box, usually through the block castiong, rotary starter is either flat against top of motor, or into rear of bellhousing bottom left side.
5: AFAIK the only 4 cylinder gearbox that bolts to an RX-5 gearbox is the RX-5 shape 121.
and second set:
1: its an RX-5 bellhousing on an RX-5 gearbox.
2: S1/2/3 box looks like a 4 banger 626 smooth case box, but S1 will have integral shifter housing (similar shifter setup to pictured RX-5 box), S2/3 will be external, similar to S4/5
