Default Need Some help With a Wankel Engine

Hey Guys , Just joined up on this great forum and I'm Exited to be learning from this community. The Company I work for has given me the task of buying a wankel engine. I have been looking for a small wankel engine for days with no luck. I'm looking for a new gasoline wankel with spark plugs that is relatively small , the smaller the better. If I could find one thats around 1" - 1.75" that would be optimal. Any info on where to track one down would be greatly appreciated . Thanks!!

Blakesan, best of luck on your search. The smallest production wankel was made by the OS model airplane engine company back in the 1970's They were glow fuel powered (alcohol) and are collector items now.

The OS Wankel was resurrected several times through the years and was still available just a short time ago. A quick scan of *bay shows several at this time.
