Hey Forum!! I have the short block together and back on the stand ready for intake etc.



I wanted to thank you guys for the help. Some of the help was intentional. Some of the help came from YOU having a problem and posting it. The answers that people gave you helped me.



I promise you, with out this forum there would not have been any chance in hell I would have been able to do this. I have no access to a shop since coming here to Cali.



My uncle owned a VW, Audi, Porsche dealership in Texas, so building bug motors was always real easy seeing as I had been sent to Wolfsberg for Tech Training in the 70s.



This Rotary was something really different, there are just things that you cannot know about this motor.



If you ask me now. I would encourage anybody to build a motor. Just get the video and join this forum.



Again, Thank you. This has been fun for me and my 12 and 9 year old boys



I hope it starts
