About this deal

Overall, the Machine Works Haynes V8 Model Engine Kit an excellent bonding experience for any parent/child or grandparent/grandchild. It even had two left-hand sides for the exhaust manifold, but it didn't really matter since that didn't illustrate anything. Spark plugs light up, pistons move up and down, the camshaft opens the valves, and the crankshaft turns the belt, which spins the fan.

Plus, once completed the model maker can register the built engine online and will receive a certificate of authenticity from Haynes Publishing. The model is fun to put together and the kit contains all the tools you'll need and over 100 parts to assemble the working model.Honda's next gen electric saloon Kia displays PBV future vans at the 2024 CES JLR offers free security upgrade for old Rangies › More here. Some bits can be fiddley to assemble and require patience, but it is fun to put together and the screws used are all the same size so no putting the wrong one in the wrong place. Part of what drives our brand is our strong network of official licensees, who share in our do-it-yourself ethos. Haynes is one of the most recognised publishing and specialist automotive brands in the world thanks to our famous repair manuals.

With mine, and it sounds like most others you wouldn't want it running for long because of the horrible noise of the motor. When looking at all the parts filled with parts it does look like quite a daunting experience but fear not it does come with a comprehensive Haynes style manual and a screwdriver – everything that you need to assemble it and no extras, like glue, needed. We found the instructions, like Haynes’s car manuals, clearly and concisely written, with essential diagrams illustrating each stage of the building process. Overall, the opinions are mixed, and it'd be best to read the instructions carefully before starting to assemble the product.Includes a Haynes Manual which features easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and a guide to the working principles of an internal combustion engine. He built it over 2 days, fairly straightforward but a few fiddly bits especially the valves and springs. Ideal for budding engineers these models feature clear parts so that you can see all of the internal parts moving.

It’s fun for adults, as you can see from the timelapse we shot ourselves in the Haynes office, but they’re also great learning tools for kids. Aimed at children aged 10 or over, the kit is a simplified version of a real engine but is not based on the unit from a particular car. It requires several hours of your time to assemble but is great fun and the interactive app adds to the fun and is very educational.Disclosure: I received this item for free for the purposes of writing an honest and impartial review. For example, they mention that the fan belt is a bit too tight, the clip on inlet and exhaust manifolds do not fit securely, and the fan is too small. Therefore, I was delighted when I was sent the Machine Works Haynes V8 Model Engine Kit complete with Digital and Interactive Augmented Reality to work on. Was well worth the money, in view of the time and concentration involved with building this model engine. Did you have any difficulty with the manifold, mine seemed to be very reluctant to clip into placeMake are you're putting it in the right hole I had the same problem, bit of persuasion and in it went.
