Hemi Engine Test Stand - Aug 15, 2006

I picked up a used GM truck radiator for $20 and added an electric fan. I wired everything up using relays for the fan and secondary ignition. Everything else is fused and ready to go.
I added a battery tray to the side of the stand also. Battery cables and wiring all routed to stay away from headers. I hooked up the alternator (1 wire) to charge the battery, even though I didn't need to for run-in on the stand.
Also seen in the second picture is the engine pre-luber that I will be using for start up. I learned about this from threads on this board, so I thought I would try it. I'll have the system pressurized with oil when I turn the key. Also seen is the O2 sensor in the left header pipe for the Innovate Motorsports LM-1 A/F ratio meter.
The only thing left to do is to drop in the distributor, add some plugs and wires and its ready to go.
The cooling system has been checked, two small leaks found and fixed. The oiling system has been filled and tested both with the pre-luber and by drill turning oil pump. Fuel system tested and good to go with pump putting out 6 psi and no leaks. Rebuilt original AFB will be used for first start up and tuning.
After I start it up and everything checks out, the carb and manifold come off, and the blower and dual Demons go on.
