ok my buddy recently picked up an RX-7 2nd gen, 86 anyhow with it came enough spare parts to build a second one, which im thinking of doing along with a small grou of my friends, thats not my point here.
i was going to do a check over of some of the parts, and i want to know what to look for in a rotary engine, as far as wear and tare on it, things that would show if a part is still usable or not.

Most of what you need to know can be found in a Mazda Factory Service Manual (FSM) or even a Haynes manual. The FSM is, by far, the better choice but is expensive compared to the readily available Haynes manuals. It's enough to get you started.
