Good Idea and Fun To Build.
on 17 May 2009
Haynes specializes in the world famous books for engines. Specific engines that is from all models of car. Here we see Haynes branching out and developing an engine of their own, albeit this time on a much simpler and smaller scale.
The Haynes combustion engine was extremely fun to put together. At first I thought about using it in my living as an ornament but then decided against because of its size and because it's not the prettiest thing to look at.
That aside that educational value regarding car engines is valuable to those who are perhaps thinking about being a car mechanic or those who wish to learn a little more about what drives the motor car they use every day. I doubt however it will appeal to many other people, save those that enjoy modeling and are looking to try their hand at something completely different.
The engine does work after providing some vegetable oil for some light lubrication and like I say was very enjoyable to put together as it wasn't too challenging. All in all a good way to learn more about car engines.
