406 on engine test stand

Here are some pics and video of the engine test stand my brother and I built. I bought the plans from ebay. I'm happy with the way it turned out and I thought I would share.

I would like to do that for you and everyone else, but it wouldn't be fair to the gentleman that took the time to draw it. Besides, I would have to scan and post 21 pages! Sorry.

Good call Red, And nice job . I want one. I considered making my own a few times but always end up testing it in the car. What do you have into it? let me guess . . . . w/o the radiator and extras 100 bucks and about 5 hrs. ?

Thanks. I wish it was only $100. The box tubing I used needed to be seamless so the legs could slide into the frame. I bet I have around $350 in material and parts to get it up and running. Have you seen the prices of fully built ones? Wow!

The really cool thing about the stand is that it folds up when your done using it. When I get my engine off of it I'll take some pictures.

Yeah, I 'm known for estimating costs low. My wife usually doubles my estimates

That motor may be a little to much power for the cavalier! I bet it would be fun though!

This is the future home for the 406.
