We have collected a lot of questions about CSON V8 products. Every question here is one that everyone has raised and is most concerned about. We will answer these questions later.

Q1. What is the output power?
Answer: about 4.8ps

Q2. Will this engine be installed on a small toy car? OHV
Answer: It is perfectly suitable for RC model cars. We will launch a clutch gearbox specifically for modified cars in the future.

Q3. Maybe the OVH version will run better than the flat V-8?
Answer: Compared with the flat-head system, the OHV version has an additional camshaft valve system. The intake systems of the two are different (ohv is slightly higher than the flat-head machine), so the efficiency of the carburetor is different, but it does not affect the starting of the two. .

Q4. Where can I buy a 55-gallon bucket? OHV
Answer: You can place an order via the link for fuel barrels

5. I was wondering if these engines require a radiator to keep them cool?
Answer: Long-term operation of the engine will heat up the body. If it is not cooled in time, internal parts will expand due to heat and cause damage.

Q6. Why do a lot of smokers smoke in a bank?
Answer: It is normal for the engine to discharge smoke and incompletely burned oil from the exhaust pipe.

Q7. Is the engine equipped with a carburetor and ignition system?
Answer: The engine comes with a CDI ignition and distributor for free

Q8. What are the uses of Cison transmission parts?
Answer: Gearboxes are used to modify cars and ships

Q9. Does the Cison ohv V8 engine have a carburetor and ignition system?
Answer: Yes, both carburetor and CDI are available, cisonv8 has carburetor, cdi and distributor

Q10. Is the flat-head air inlet suitable for OHV engines? If so, can I buy an air intake and carburetor?
Answer: Any parts of the engine can be purchased

Q11. Does this have a wire plug?
Answer: The distributor’s wire set is included for free, but the spark plugs need to be purchased separately.

Q12. Are there any color options? Can you show them?
Answer: The color is limited to black silver, green silver, and red silver. Excessive quantity is not available.

Q13. Is the OHV version equipped with an alternator?
Answer: The alternator needs to be purchased separately. It's a different alternator than the one used in the Cison straight-four, but it's the same price.

Q14. I also want to use the gearbox and other accessories. Will the Cison transmission fit a 4 cylinder V8 engine?
Answer: The four-cylinder transmission V8 cannot be used

Q15. I just bought a black cison V8! And its starter kit! I'm curious if it comes with engine mounts? Or do I need to order them separately? Does the starter kit come with the CDI and electronics required to run it? at last. Does the black V8 use a big belt like in the website photo? Or does it use a tiny belt like the L4 engine? Thank you so much! Regardless, I'm glad it got here!
Answer: The engine bracket is not included and needs to be purchased separately. The engine comes with a CDI ignition and distributor for free.
Other ignition accessories need to be purchased

Q16. Thank you for providing the kit. However I ran into problems right from the start. The cylinder liner is difficult to remove from the block to insert the "O" ring. I eventually managed to gently remove them and install the seal in place. This is where the problem arises, it is either a machined seam on the block or the cylinder liners are too tight, I lubricated them as instructed and tried to insert them. They were very, very tight and I managed to get them through the first seal and hit them with a mallet. Four out of eight had the bottom seal ripped off. They don't come out of the module, I tested them and they definitely leak.
Is there any solution to this situation? Is there any sealant I can use? They also promised to give me a tachometer in case of long delays.
please suggest me
Answer: (Ask Mr. Xi about piston rings)

Q17. Do you plan to equip cison v8 with a super charger or two front pipes?
Answer: Superchargers are not currently under consideration for production.

Q18. Is the carburetor equipped with the engine?
Answer: The carburetor is included in the package

Q19, splitter and splitter cable are included in the package. The carburetor assembly is also included in the package. The color is only orange for now. If you like other colors, you can DIY with an airbrush. The electrophoretic paint surface can be colored.
Flathead air intakes are not compatible with OHV air intakes.
