Finally, I Have The LEGO Set I Always Wanted

In the 80's LEGO made a build your own engine set. I tried for many years to get one, but either it is incomplete (missing pistons), or way too expensive. This one popped up and seems that I finally got my wish.

Whats better than LEGO and engines? :D

This one is from 1979 and it is practically new! None of the bricks have any wear, four of the bags are still sealed, and even has the two rubber bands!

Only one gear and the instructions are missing. I printed it and have plenty of gears to use.

The box is in great condition for almost 40 years old! I cant think why this set was never built? The owner lost the instructions and gave up?
