“A common part for a chainsaw, auger or minibike. Can be used to make these items once you've read the schematic.”


The Small Engine is a component used to craft several high-end items in 7 Days to Die.

When used in the Auger, Chainsaw, and Minibike, the quality of the Small Engine can change the following stats:

  • How noisy the item is when in use
  • Max speed of the Minibike
  • Max acceleration of the Minibike
  • How much fuel the item uses when in use and the rate it consumes fuel
  • How much fuel the item can hold


The Small Engine cannot be crafted and instead must be found through scavenging or harvesting. The most common way to obtain a Small Engine is to use a Wrench and harvest/dismantle from a Sedan.

When scavenging, the Small Engine can be found in Working Stiffs Crates.
