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 5 out of 5 by from perfect father and son project I bought this for my 9 year old son as a birthday gift, and we both have had a great time, working together to build the engine. A great bonding gift to work on with your kid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but fragile! As a driving instructor, I purchased this to build and use as a teaching aid to my students, many of which do not understand the first thing about internal combustion engines. The product went together relatively well mechanically, but I had problems with the electrics whereby the printed circuit board in the control unit failed immediately, and the jack on the spark plug leads came apart in no time. The distribution company customer service however has been excellent. They sent out replacement parts withing a couple of days and free of charge. All working now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fun to build, but quality not 100% I bought this for my budding engineer daughter who spent a couple of enjoyable hours building it. Managed to get it set up with correct timing etc, but a couple of issues - 1, the fan belt was too small which mean the crankshaft flexed and therefore wouldn't engage with the flywheel and run properly so had to remove it and 2, the electric motor only starts and runs intermittently. I have contacted the manufacturer though who are sending replacements.

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.
