In this section of our car construction guide to My Summer Car, you will find a step-by-step instructions on how to build an engine. In addition, we explain how to build a gearbox and connect it to the engine. We advise you what keys are needed for this and what is the correct order of joining parts to make the car engine work properly in My Summer Car.
Installation of the engine takes place in the garage on the stand by the wall. You will find all the parts on the shelves and the floor at the back of the garage, and you should buy the alternator belt and oil filter from the store. Remember that the engine won't break down if it accidentally falls off. Use the option to rotate it and put it in different positions frequently to get the best possible access to hidden screws. To move the engine, you must always click on the BLOCK section. Place the toolbox on the tabletop for easy and quick access.
Start from the main base - engine BLOCK and the CRANKSHAFT. Combine these parts together at your workstation. To twist this pair together you will need three parts called the MAIN BEARING. They are marked consecutively with numbers and each fits only in a specific place - on the outer parts of the block and in the middle.
Each bearing is held in two nuts of size 9.
It is worthwhile to insert the CAMSHAFT into the block and screw it with two nuts of size 5.
Now it's time for four PISTONS. Insert them into the round holes in the cylinders of the engine block so that they are adjacent to the crankshaft. Each of them is screwed with two nuts of size 7, visible from the crankshaft side.
Then place the HEAD GASKET on the block without any screwing. The CYLINDER HEAD comes on top of it, which you screw with ten size 7 nuts.
A longitudinal part called ROCKER SHAFT has to be attached to the head. Screw it with five 8mm nuts.
Exposed valves are covered with the ROCKER COVER. Tighten them with six 7mm nuts.
Attach the exhaust manifold to the header of the engine. Tighten it with five 8mm nuts.
Attach the CARBURATOR to the exhaust manifold.
Screw it with four 8mm nuts.
Time for CAMSHAFT GEAR and water pump. Turn the engine sideways and attach the CAMSHAFT GEAR. Screw it with a 10mm key. NOTE - in a moment you will have to set it properly.
SETTING - you will find a special marking on the engine block, a blade indicating approximately 10 o'clock. The same blade can be found on the Camshaft gear.
Using the same key as the screw (10mm), use the mouse roll slowly until the marking on the wheel is exactly the same as the marking on the engine block.
Now you can put on the TIMING CHAIN and cover the mechanism with the TIMING COVER, which you can tighten with six 6mm screws.
Mount the CRANKSHAFT PULLEY on the cover and tighten it with one screw of 11 mm size.
Install the WATER PUMP above it and screw it with five 7mm nuts.
Mount WATER PUMP PULLEY on the pump and fix it with four 7mm screws.
Rotate the engine with the wider side to yourself. Install the DISTRIBUTOR ignition device on it. Use a screwdriver to tighten this part. Later you will have to adjust the ignition this way.
It's time for the OIL FILTER. Use a new unit from the store - do not use the used part from the garage. The oil filter does not require keys, mount it using the mouse wheel.
Mount the FUEL PUMP next to it and screw it on with two 7mm nuts.
Insert the spark plugs into the four holes in the head of the engine. You will find them in a sparkplug box that can be purchased in the store. Open the box with the F key each time to remove one spark plug. You can screw them to the block with a special SPARKPLUG WRENCH key.
Time for the ALTERNATOR. Install it right next to the water pump. Screw it with two nuts - one 7mm, the other 10mm. There's a screw to regulate, but don't touch it yet.
Place the alternator belt on the prepared parts. Stay in hands-on mode. Tighten the roller to its maximum position, then "unscrew" it with two clicks of the mouse roller and tighten the screw with a screwdriver.
Attach an OIL PAN to the bottom of the engine block. Secure it with eight 7mm and one 13mm nuts, which acts as a drain when replacing the oil. Make sure that it is tightened as much as possible.
Rotate the motor block to the smaller side, and attach the ENGINE PLATE.
Install the FLYWHEEL. Secure it with six 7mm bolts.
Connect the three clutch parts together without any screws: CLUTCH COVER PLATE, CLUTCH DISC.
Mount the prepared set on the flywheel and tighten it with six 6mm screws.
Attach the STARTER and secure it with two 7mm nuts.
It's time to install the GEARBOX. Attach a huge element to the engine block and screw it on with six 7mm screws and one 10mm screw.
Mount the DRIVE GEAR to the gearbox and tighten it with seven 6mm screws.
This is it! The complex engine is ready to be installed in the car.
