303 wankel

I know people are probably getting tired of reading these, but I have a 72 Panther with the 303 Wankel engine, and would like to rebuild it.
Does anyone out there know where I can obtain the seals, springs, and anything else to do an overhaul on this engine.
I've heard of somp people using Mazda Rotary engine seals, but have to be machined.
Does anyone out there sell this kit, or an original, I would be greatly interested.
I saved my 72, which sat behind an old saw mill for over 25 years.
Was in tough shape, but I did the restore. It looks beautiful again, except the motor could use a re do.
I've run it, and the last time, it felt like it was seizing up. When I pulled the rewind over, it pulled harder. Must have leaned it out.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

I've tried E-bay and the only things I found there, were a part here and a part there.
It would take forever to acumulate all the pieces that way.

I have looked around too and for the Wankle there aint much
Mfgsupply.com has alot of stuff, but no gasket set, now if you had the kawasaki engine it'd be easier.

Any luck getting engine parts? I just bought a 72 Panther 303. It runs perfectly, so I am not worried. But, I haven't seen much on ebay. I haven't tried searchtempest yet.

Wankel parts

I have some NOS Wankel parts. Just PM with what you are looking for and I will see what I have. I do know I have some of the seals and such. Enclose the engine model number and serial number. On some of those engines, they have p/n's for certain serial numbers.

You can still find the rebuild procedure in the 1971-73 shop manual CD Rom from Arctco. Some places on line will let you download that old book for free. Good book for the older Cats.
