some oval holes at one end
Those would be for the pickup tube, perhaps. I made my hole for this too small and the plate needed a lot of maneuvering to remove without removing the pickup first.

Uh, No....
These are for the pan screws. Tracey said he had to rat tail file the ones on his 20B plate he got from Fred to make them fit, thats why I wanted templates to take some of this guestimated work out of the gene pool.
There are variations in front covers from model to year that cause problems with where the oil pickup tube and pressure regulator go, ours is a full inch further towards the pulleys than any other we have seen so we are looking for a new front cover assembly of some sort. Would love to go with one new enough to incorporate the pulley mounted CAS but not the full renesis front cover, isn't that sort of what you have John?

Yes. My Crank Angle Sensor is mounted on screwholes in the front cover so that it aligns with the spoked / toothed wheel mounted before the pulley. How does that get involved in the mount?

No, I'm not taking the engine out so you can have it in your shop. Maybe Bruce can send you an old one.

"How does that get involved in the mount?" What, you never heard of thread drift? Its one thing making parts to keep everybody happy but when you start talking about making wheeeedwhacker noises I want to play too so excuse the self-absorbed fantasies about getting our engine running as well
So you are saying you just drilled and mounted the CAS pickup on some standoffs on your front cover???

I didn't drill anything. The CAS is bolted in the stock position (3rd Gen)

The front cover (and engine) is a 1994 13b/REW turbo. I don't know the part number of the cas. Sorry.

By the way, one neat thing about the timing setup on the third gen is that there's no messing with mechanical timing adjustment. The toothed wheel only goes on one way, and the CAS bolts up next to it. No possibily of error or adjustment. The only adjustment I have is electronically in the EC2.

You have a third gen with a 2nd gen front housing - right?

Rotorheads-
Designs are finished for :
-13B/Renesis bed mounting plate
-20B bed mounting plate
-redrive mounting plate with starter relocated to cold side

Note, our redrive mounting plate is short on the bottom and bolts to our bed mounting plate for more rigidity.

Please contact us by email at CGParts on aol dot com,
subject: rotary engine mount
and let us know if you intend to purchase one of these and which model from us so that we can determine how many of these to have machined, more orders = lower prices. Right now we are looking at around $500 for the 13B bed plate unless we get more orders.
We are not looking for deposites, just that you are seriously interested.
Thanks, Chrissi

Those are right purty! I wouldn't be looking for "deposites" either. I would probably look for deposits though. Ol' Kevin needs the money!

Depositar is the spanish singular word for, you guessed it deposit. Deposites is plural for deposits. Day-poe-SEE-tayce

I bet you speak French too. So does John. But he seems to not like it. Everytime he speaks French he apologizes: "Pardon my French"!

Anyway "Que todo Bueno"!

Chrissi,
In your current design for the 13B mount what is the measurement to the firewall from the reference point illustrated in my attachment.

Thats 13.7750" give or take a few thou... I would have to dig a little to accurately verify that but it should be close. The actual tube frame for the mount was cloned from a known good mount.

Thanks Chrissi, that's a good starting point for me to start running numbers.
