Heavy duty Universal Test Stand


It's all finished up and painted, makes it easier to see everything. Please excuse the dirty shop, it's been a busy day!

Quick intro:

- Has detachable face plates, this allows you to have plates that fit your engines perfectly and attach using 4x bolts.

- Throttle is controlled via a lever that is behind the metal bulkhead (safety bonus!). The friction on the throttle arm is controlled by a pinch collar on the bottom of the throttle arm via a 1/4 shaft.

- Gas tank perch is movable in all directions, move it to the height and angle you want.. Then lock it down via a side bolt. There are two mounting points; one on each side of the stand.

- All metal (1/4 plate) so its 100% fuel and fire proof.

- Second mounting point can be used for an am ho hold various sensors.

- Base has a large array of bolt holes, easy mounting.

I can make as many plates as you want. I'll be including 3x plates with each stand.

(The linkage has a piece of Tig rod in it just to show the basic function)

Looking for 80$ or trades!

Thanks!

What is the max size the mount will safely handle? Also is there a possibility to machine and include two metal mounts that could slide in long oval slots on the base and the mounts themselves have similar long oval slots so that a variety of engines (with conventional lugs can easily be mounted without resorting to changing the engine mount with each engine) and the other plate could just have multiple holes to take the standoffs for the engine equipped with such

Side to side, the max bolt pattern would have to be no wider than 7 x 8 inches. I looked around and made sure that it is large enough to handle almost any large gas/nitro motor.

Sounds like you are talking about the kinda thing you find on an engine stand for car engines?

Making a plate with a grid pattern would be no problem.
