Motorworks visible 4 cylinder engine

 from Grafton, OH– Verified Buyer

Clear plastic is too blue to see moving parts inside. Timing belt has too much flash from mold it is hard to remove and affects timing if not given a lot of attention. On the plus side no glue needed, same size screws for assembly makes it a breeze to put
together, and parts are well packaged. Runs well.

Almost like the real deal

 from Phx,Az

Putting the engine together is staight forward with just a few tweeks here and there. And if the timing is set right the engine looks as if it is really running. Great buy

Great Little Engine

 from Mesa, Az.– Verified Buyer

This is a good little engine for teaching kids with. It goes together fairly easy, although some of the instructions are kinda vague. There was one step that wasnt listed in the instructions in regards to the valve guides. But in the end it works smoothly and very well. I do wish the battery pack mounted to the bottom stand or something tho. But I would highly reccomend this model engine. I built it with my daughter (13) and now she understands how an engine works, and the four stroke cycle story.
