So I was watching a guy rebuild a Mazda rx8 wankle engine and stumbled across these little 300cc rotary engines! Made by Sachs... Same as the moped Sachs? What were these use for? What do yins know about these?

There was one guy that put one on a mb5. There was a even smaller 58cc Sachs Wankel that was used on a Sachs-Dolmar chainsaw.

There's a video of one a guy mated to a small motorcycle on YT. Replaced the original engines crank with a shaft n pulley. So it uses the og gearbox

Re: Sachs rotary/wankle engine?!

they sold some on lawnmowers in the states, we had one gathering dust in a basement at my college, it was pretty rad.

had a lil' bing carb on it, just like those 17 mm ones that come on mag x's.

they sold them for generators, water pumps, lawnmowers, snowblowers even i think, all the same shit as regular engines.

you can find youtubes of the folks with lawnmowers running them.
