Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Gift My nephew is 9 and autistic and struggling at school with learning. So we bought him this for Christmas. He . May not be academic but he loves projects and building things with his dad. He loved this and was so proud once it was complete. Yes his dad had to help alot but he now wants to be a mechanic when older like his grandad.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Valve hole to narrow Great time constructing this with my little bro. Until we switched it on and found that one of the valve holes was to narrow. We got it working at a 3V engine just to see it in action, but we had to return it for a replacement. Unfortunately the store didn't have a replacement, so we have a voucher instead.

Do you need any oil?

And if yes where does it go?????
Asked by: Anonymous
The manual recommends a small amount of vegetable oil around the edge of the piston, so when the pistons move up and down they lubricate the cylinder walls.
