Build a greatly simplified version of a real car engine with this 100+ piece, all-inclusive kit by Haynes® that designed to be both fun and educational. Flick the switch and see - visually - the internal mechanics of a piston engine that's carried people around the world for decades. See lights inside each cylinder flash on and off at precisely the moment a spark plug would. The clear, see-thru cylinder block, cylinder head and sump pan allow you to see how every part (pistons, camshaft, valves etc.) contribute in making a four-stroke engine work. Even hear the engine start too!
Please note: To keep things simple, the following components which are fitted to a full-size engine don't appear on the model: oil filter, cooling system, air filter, connecting rod bearings, piston rings, oil pump, alternator and starter (a drive module, powered by a small electric motor, is fitted in place of the starter motor). Also, the following components are included on the model, but don't function as they would on a full-size engine: water pump, throttle body, dipstick (without oil), flywheel and clutch.
The kit contains over 100 parts and all the tools you'll need including the famous Haynes Manual that provides clear step-by-step instructions for ages 10 years and over.
