Build Your Own Working Model of a V8 Engine
Endorsed by Haynes
The V8 engine is one that really gets the blood pumping with excitement. Found in professional race cars from Formula One and Nascar to drag racing, muscle cars like the Shelby Mustang and high-end luxury sports cars like Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini, this V8 model kit allows you to bring the prestige and beauty of owning a V8 engine into your home without having to shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars.
With over 250 parts, this working V8 engine model, with its unique smoky color, allows you to see the spark plugs as they light up and experience the movement of the pistons and they churn up and down. Watch the camshaft open the valves wide open, and feel the wind in your hair while the crankshaft turns the serpentine belt, causing the fan to spin. Included in the base is a sound chip that has been pre-recorded with the sound of an actual V8 engine starting up and running, while the model is in operation.
The 40-page instruction booklet, published by the world-wide leader in automotive repair manuals, Haynes Publishing, gives step-by-step illustrated instructions on how to put together your very own V8 engine from the parts included in the kit. It also features a glossary of engine terms, explains the basics of how an engine works, and gives an introduction into the world of engines.
Endorsed by Haynes, this is a great teaching tool for the classroom or the garage for any car enthusiast.
**Model requires 3 AA batteries (not included). A small Phillips head screwdriver is included. We recommend that fine grit modeling sandpaper and/or a craft knife be used to trim any excess plastic on the engine parts, after they have been removed from the holdings.
