Hi Folks,
Can someone give me an idiots guide or any tips on what is needed to get to a rear wheel bearing, as i\'m having mine replaced at the weekend.....
Now i\'m primarily thinking of the difficulties they may have removing the rear calliper as i recall mention of needing a special tool or butchering needle nosed pliers to unwind them. Can someone confirm the specifics of this please so i can pass on tips & save time trouble etc.......(spec for size of tool would be good as they have a decent resident welder who could make one)
& any other things i should know about or tips for getting to/replacing the wheel bearings? I no it\'s a big SOB so they\'ve already lined up usage of a big press they seemed to think would be necessary when they saw it.....

General Technical / Speed pulse number for FD????
« on: September 30, 2004, 12:17:15 PM »
HELP i need to set this for my nice new electric (pix to follow :D) speedo guage to work, dunno WTF it is but need to know what "speed pulse number" the RX7 works on? Will be speedo related guess it\'s how many time the thingy does sumin with the wotsit ?

Gonna get me some new brakes fitted & i was just wanting to check how much fluid the FD takes to fully flush the system out as i still have just over 1.5 litres of nice Lucas dot 5.1 stuff.....
Also is it worth painting the centre bits of the discs before they go on car & end up going rusty or is it just shyte discs which do that...?
Any good?

General Technical / intake/intercooler temps?
« on: September 03, 2004, 12:29:15 PM »
OK so out of interest (given my slight bunged up bit ducting thingy ATM) what temps do folks normally see (those with power FC\'s etc) & what are peoples thoughts on what temps are prefereable (OK yes colder is better) but from a over 70 is dangerous/bad kinda thing? :confused:
Si (just looking for thoughts as i say i know colder is better...)

General Technical / magnetic oil drain bolt?
« on: July 19, 2004, 10:26:10 PM »
I recall seeing a while back in scooby land talk of sticking a very small but powerful magnet by oil filter which in theory wood then  attract tiny metal bits in oil to keep it cleaner....
See a magnetic oil drain bolt on ebay for mazda & wondered if anyone had any thoughts on these?
Si (animal magnetism\' target=\'_blank\'>\' border=0> as standard! lol)

Now i\'ve already seen a general set of distructions as per:

But was wondering if anyone can tell me which tubes need to plug where for the ole FD as i\'m clueless (no dont\' target=\'_blank\'>\' border=0>quote\' target=\'_blank\'>\' border=0> me on that on everything i ever say! lol)
Photos of which pipes to tap into under the bonnet would be good.......
Sum folks are on about venting it to atmosphere rather than back is this a cunning plan?

Wheels & Tyres, Suspension & Brakes / Club discount for tyres
« on: July 12, 2004, 09:41:15 PM »
Now primarily was doing it for eagle F1\'s but as it turns out can be done for any tyres they sell. Followed on from a planned group buy on scoobynet & the resulting deal offers 3% off their standard prices, which are the cheapest i\'ve been able to find & many others who offered group buy prices couldn\'t even match their standard prices! Twas a problem on previous group buys as everyone just went local & got folks to price match but i had no joy doing this with these particular wide bad boys

Anyway back on track the deal is as follows:

Go to

Select desired tyres, sizes or otherwise

Place order & pay online kinda thing

email david at mytyres on  with your order number (which it gives you when placing order online) your name (& user name) & that your from Mazdarotaryclub (MRC) seeking the 3% discount as part of the agreed club discount. You can say the good lord scooby_si sent ya if you like he should know me by now with all the emails we\'ve sent each other

They dont charge the CC until tyres are despatched so shouldn\'t be an issue & even if it is ah i\'ll let the man speak for himself:
We do not charge the credit card until the tyres have been sent so if you
send me your details I will change the price and once the tyres are sent we
will take the amount from the credit card. If for any reason this is missed
then the difference will be refunded to the credit card. Some club members
in the past have emailed me after the tyres have been sent.

We offer the 3% to your club page this will always be the case no matter how
many orders we get. 1 or 1 hundred it will be a 3% discount

So there\'s no cut off date or quantity/group buy requirement just 3% off their listed prices.

I didn\'t want to post anything till i\'d done a test run & can safely say my nice new eagle F1\'s arrived today & were indeed charged at reduced & rather healthy price. So all good as far as i\'m concerned if anyone has problems let me know i\'ll chase it up.

I have no link with mytyres other than wanting to get cheap tyres for myself & the users of this club & hope that\'s of use to some/many of you .
Si (AKA the tight one )
