Bench testing of restored engines?



I may be stupid but I have often wondered how members bench test the engines they have bought or restored that have been removed from the vehicle. Presumably once reassembled they connect up a battery and perhaps stick a fuel line in a jerry can etc but what else is involved. Do you need to build a steel frame to hold the engine in place?

Needs must Gordon I guess :),

On the whole if you want your nearest and dearest to collect the life insurance don't do it that way....... it would be considered suicide.


Use a frame, you can knock one together from medium gauge box section, make it so you can move the cross supports around to take different types and positions of mount and a couple of brackets for oil and temp gauges on the side rail, keep it wider rather than taller for stability, you'll be surprised at how many other things you can use it for.
