 cars - Mazda Wankel engine
Although never produced in volume, the 40A was a valuable testbed for Mazda engineers, and quickly demonstrated two serious challenges to the feasibility of the design: "chatter marks" in the housing and heavy oil consumption.
This was the only production Mazda Wankel with different rotor dimensions: Diameter was 120 mm (4.7 in) and offset was 17.5 mm (0.7 in), but depth remained the same as the 10A at 60 mm (2.4 in).
The only other 4-rotor engine from Mazda was used exclusively for the various Mazda-built GT cars (including the 767B and 787B).
