Almost done building my start stand. I will straighten out the wiring in the next couple days. Very solid and it sure is great hearing the engine run.





Put some wheels on for ease of moving!

Removable battery/fuel tray for storage

Control Panel fitted. Now time to wire the panel and put some gauges in.

I think it will roll all over the shop unless you disable the wheels somehow.

Of course it will, that is why I put the wheels on it!!!!!


If you are thinking it will roll around when I am running the engine...
It works great, no problem.

Dude, I have built 100's of engines and I never bothered to build one of those. I do have a universal exhaust for engine testing if you ever need it.
Why don't you make it so it can rotate, then it can be an engine building stand. It will get a lot more use that way I would think.

Having it rotate was my initial idea. Still might do it. I purchased the pipe for it.
