The new atkins rebuild video is crap. I bought it and it FLYS through the rebuild without giving you any real info....the last version, though it be old, is 10 times better.

Mechanical Engineering? Sure. A degree in rotary engines? A degree as in University? Just rotaries? That is entirely too specialized. The problem is, higher education isn't designed toward teaching one how to simply rebuild a certain automobile engine. Ponder the idea of a four year degree. Now, how long do you think it would take to teach you how to rebuild a 13b?



Auto dealers send their mechanics to class. The mechanics end up with certificates in specialized areas. You could contact the corporate offices of Mazda in Irvine and ask about their education fees. If (big if) Mazda will allow you to attend mechanics classes and not be affiliated with any dealers, I suppose it's possible. If Mazda's courses are anything like IBM courses, be prepared to spend a fair amount of money. And those certs, they become obsolete. You could check the junior colleges in your area for automobile repair programs, graduate from one (no, they probably won't teach you how to rebuild a rotary), then apply at a Mazda dealership, and work your way up.



Another option is find a shop that specializes in rotaries and beg the owner to hire you.

Here's an idea. The Southern California Rx Club will probably hold an engine rebuilding clinic again this year. It's not on the calendar yet, but if you don't already live in the land of sunshine, bikinis, and HIGH TAXES plan to fly down and attend. It may not teach you everything there is, but it's a very good start.
