Hi I am vortash .. if the steering is hard it sounds as if you either have a fluid leak ( or it just requires topping up ) or the power steering rack or pump are faulty... check if there are obvious signs of fluid loss around the rack or the pump .. check the hydraulic pipes to the power steering are not damaged , you may need to bleed the system if you have let the fluid go too low .. and this may be better done by a garage as they have the correct equipment to do it safely ... hope this is of help regards Vortash

My 1981 mazda rx7 turns over but will not crank like it's not getting any fuel.

Check operation of fuel pump. Remove fuel hose and crank. Is there any pressure? Is there fuel coming out?
If not, then check fuel pump for power. If no power, then check any relays.

I have a 1989 mazda rx7 convertible automatic with the 13b rotary engine and im going to swap the engine and tranny for the 13b turbo engine and manual tranny,and also have it hard to swap and how.

its not hard at all. as long as your good with your hands. and know the basics of your rx7. other then that everything bolts in. you just need a turbo driveshaft for sure. or they sell a custom driveshaft on so you can keep your N/A differential.

Mazda rx7 93 looses power @ 7k+

Look for restrictions in the intake air and exhaust systems. Check fuel pressure and delivery (fuel filter/pump). Check the ignition system as well. If the engine has a lot of miles, you may be experiencing combustion seal wear. These are amazing engines when they work correctly! Good luck!

The steering play adjustment is tricky. Get a shop that does MAZDA and have them adjust it for you.
