Plan For Engine Break-In Stand?

Anybody have (or know about) a nice design for a permanently mounted
engine break-in stand? We want to put one at our field, away from the
flight line. This way an engine can be run for a time without driving
the people in the pits out. I have a nice J'tec aluminum clamp I could
mount on a post, but I thought perhaps someone has come up with
something better.

Thanks,

Tom

Re: Plan For Engine Break-In Stand?

Yes! This is the one I had a mental image of. I must have seen this
somewhere before. I thought it was in one of my books on engines, I
looked for a picture of it for a few days. Now I know where to find
it.

Thanks much,

Tom

Re: Plan For Engine Break-In Stand?

Speaking as a club officer whose club's field is on public land, I'd
be against having a "club engine test stand" at the field. Too many
liability issues.

I have to wonder how you control the mobile test stands called model
planes...

Speaking as a former club officer - which doesn't mean a thing about the clubs
policy, unless we vote on it - we've had an engine test stand ever since we had
a field. That way, we have a place to break in engines.

Re: Plan For Engine Break-In Stand?

I'm wondering that too. There is no more danger or liability in running
an engine in a test stand then there is running an engine in an aircraft. In
fact, there's probably less risk.

Someone hurts him/herself using the stand and sues the club and
property owner because the stand is defective, etc.

Don't laugh, it could happen.

The difference is that the airplane belongs to the user, the stand
belongs to the club. The latter case is where the liability could lie.

It doesn't matter since both the club AND the individual user would be
covered by AMA insurance in either case.

I would agree if the test stand is anchored sufficiently. No chance of a
runaway!

Re: Plan For Engine Break-In Stand?

Same thing would happen if that same litigious person injured themself with
a fuselage mounted engine.

A lawyer can make anything sound improper.
