Len Evansic Posted October 24, 2004 Share Posted October 24, 2004 OK, so I'm new here, and still feeling out the various engine choices that others on the forum have used, before I commit to anything. I understand the reason that many auto-conversions are used and some of the issues encountered. When it comes to the rotary though, I find myself constantly scratching my head. In almost every detailed page I've found so far, it seems as though everyone disables some oil injectors in their engines, and instead use a pre-mixed 2-cycle type fuel. Why? Why disable the lubrication system, and why bother with the hassle of having to mix oil with the gas, as if it were a 1960's Saab? What other changes have to be made to the engines, and why do so many people choose the rotary over other more conventional auto-conversions, like the Subaru or the converted Benz diesels? Is it just to be different? I am genuinely curious to find the answers to these questions. -- Len Quote -- Len Evansic, Cozy Mk.
