Building and starting the engine

So far I have most of the major parts of this project complete like the chassis finished and painted, suspension designed, machined and ready for installation, so the only major component that needs to be done is the engine.
I needed to strip the dummy Mazda 13B rotary engine and re-build the engine so that it is ready to be assemble to the gearbox and then fit the engine and gearbox with all the accessories back into the chassis.
The photos show the engine as the assembly takes place, the front rotor and housing is assembled, the water O rings are installed. Note the port shape on the rear primary inlet port, this is my own shape we will see how it goes later.
