    • Is this Montrose still around? Here's hoping!
    • I would wire it separately with a switch.

    • Needing some advice with Old Six. Wanting to know how to wire the fogs with the parking lights, I find it annoying that the fogs only come on with the headlights... thanks in advance.
    • I have an Asia Rocsta with the F8 Carburetted engine. I have to rebuild the engine and am thinking of an upgrade. Any idea if I can use a FE cylinder head  with injection?
    • vtails,   your post was so helpful. Gave me all the answers that I was looking for.  Location where to get that mystery trans axle shaft bushing that no one knows anything about.  Not even the Madza dealership parts dept.  Thanks to everyone who post, all the help is really great.  Yes I'm new here.  
    • Hello all,  I have a 02 626 2.0 and changed out the front axles.  Everything was fine for about 3 weeks until the car overheated from a bad coolant fan with the ac on.  I shut off the ac and kept driving.  The temp gauge never reached the the limit on the gauge and there was no issue with the engine when it a little hot.  Temp gauge came back down to normal shortly after I shut off the ac.  When I came out  I found trans fluid under the car.  It looked like it was coming from the axle seal so I changed it out.  Filled the trans and warmed it up, topped it off and no leaks until I took it for a test drive and really warmed it up.  I got back and found it leaking but can't pinpoint where its coming from.  I don't think its the seal.  Any ideas to help me out.
    • You should try adjusting the TPS.  
    • Just an update on the 626 racer... We ran in the Champcar Endurance Series 24-hour race at VIR this weekend. Out of 97 cars to make it to the grid, we finished 15th overall and won B-class. We're happy with those results out of an under powered 4-door Mazda, lol. Even during high ambient temps, our water temps were well below 200* and our oil temps never got over 220*. We will be back at Sebring in September racing in the CCES 14-hour race, where we won B-class last year as well. We have a number of solid, fast and reliable rental drivers, which helps make this possible.  In February, at the Road Atlanta 14-hour, we broke the 3-4 shift fork, effectively ending our race. This was disappointing, as we moved the car from 78th position at the start to 17th by lap 239 and with about 5 hours left in the race.  We fixed the car for the April race at Daytona-Rolex. Unfortunately, a defective Hydramat caused a fuel starvation issue on the banking, which led to a lean condition causing detonation and the eventual demise of a connecting rod after about 4 hours. A replacement FS motor was installed and tuned and it made very similar horsepower to the engine we previously had in the car. The car runs about mid-pack lap times, but can run a full 2-hour stint on fuel (with ease), so it is competitive in endurance racing. We've also modified the rollcage to accommodate drivers over 6'-0". The original cage was very close to the steering wheel and offered no ability to slide the seat and almost no layback, making the seating position quite uncomfortable for some. The seat mount has been redone as well and the seat is on a slider with the slider bar being foot actuated for ease of use by the driver.  So the 626 is still going strong. We've got over 60 hours of racing on it and no plans to move on at anytime in the near future.
