Here is the instructions to make a Big Block V8 using the LEGO Technic V8 engine. It isn't exactly like the other Big Block I made, but its the same technique.
Hope many of you can build this engine.
The Technic V8 engine is necessary to make this model.
Sorry about the video at the end being smaller than normal. My new camera shoots in MPEG4 and had to convert it for movie maker to recognize it.
LEGO Chevy big block with 4 speed transmission
here is my mini v-8 engine made to look like a Chevy big block engine. A
model of course. It even has a Supercharger driven by the engine. It has lots of
detail, even spark plug wires! Has a 4-speed H shift. The transmission is a
modified one made by Sariel. I switched the gears to get a larger ratio.
Tried to keep it as small as possible. It is the same size as the engine,
which isn't realistic but close as it can get.
LEGO Supercharged V8 Muscle Car with 4 speed transmission. By Legomanaicman
Check out the stock version of my muscle car here:
and pictures of the supercharged version here:
I made some engines with transmissions in the past. Now I put those in a
LEGO car :)
My own design muscle car with a motorized technic V8 engine with Supercharger powering a 4 speed transmission.
No worn out or destroyed gears in making this.
LDI-6 LEGO diesel engine inline 6 made by Legomaniacman
Here is my 6th LEGO model diesel engine. Resembles a Caterpillar.
What actually functions on the engine is the pistons, crankshaft, camshaft,
2:1 realistic timing, pushrods, rocker arms, and turbo. Which would work if the engine had working
valves and displaced enough air.
firing order is: 1,5,3,6,2,4
The intake and Exhaust are hollow, not
solid like my other engines
It is powered by a 9V motor and the LEGO train speed regulator. Tried it
with a drill, but seems the max RPM of the lego motor is the highest the
pistons can take. I thought of a new design after I disassembled the engine
I will make another, but not anytime soon.
I choose to skip the working valves after months of failure. The valves
fall of into the engine and jam the camshaft and messes up the timing.
Started in April of 2010 and finished in mid Sept 2010. Only worked on it
when I had the time, but this
engine was the most challenging and detailed.
LEGO 8110 Unimog U 400 in action
My $200 LEGO Technic Unimog U 400. I sold my old laptop for this truck and
it is money well spent. I love LEGO, Unimogs, and big sets. So this is
I have yet to find room to place this truck as it is sitting on my LEGO
creations desk. Which takes up my whole desk.
This will no doubt be a collectors set like the 8880 supercar among other
LEGO Diesel Version 4
This is my 4th LEGO diesel engine, Updated from my 1st Lego diesel engine.
This is an in-line 4 cylinder engine, electric motor drives the engine of
course, has a total of 8 valves, 12 pushrods, cam drivin fuel injectors turbo charger, lots of detail, and shiney
I could of added valve springs, but the RPMs would be too low, and put wear
on my motor, it is my 2nd to strongest engine.
1st: NXT engine
2nd: ver 4
3rd: big red
4th: ver 1

see my blog page on this subject, including flash demos, and watch it in
action hooked up to a 4-speed transmission, visit
LDV-5 2 stroke lego diesel model engine
This isn't my favorite engine I ever made but I find the idle sounds really
good. What I don't like is that I couldn't put 4 valves like I really
wanted to, the cam shaft was causing problems so I left it like it was
instead of starting over. Its my first V-twin so I would expect it not to
be perfect. The other part I don't like is that I wanted to add a super
charger but the V-shape was a challenge, I hope next time I will add one.
You may ask, Why upload if I don't like the engine? well to keep it in
order and I didn't like LDV-2 but I put it up and people love it, hope you
will to :)
AWESOME JEEPS WITH BIG BLOCKS!!!!
