Just thought I'd throw this out there.

Anyone have an AC run stand that works around these parts?

Side note, am I the only one currently working balls out on getting a car together? I know Eric is always working on something though.

I have a starter jig for starting one on the floor, real basic, not really a run stand, but it works.

How hard would it be to make an actual stand for it? I can buy the steel.

The problem with a running stand, is getting the motor up there if all alone. I actually put my motors on an appliance cart, bolt on the starter unit, gas and battery and start it up. Then I can get the motor on a jack if alone.

I am busy working on things...building 3 narrowed bus beams right now, one for a '65 bus I am selling.

A couple more months until the good weather starts coming back Smile

Good point, didn't think about that.
