Engine test stand???

Anybody out there build their own engine test stand. Do you have pix and/or drawings you'd like to share? My winter project is a 2.7 w/9.5:1 JE's, E-cams, carbs etc. I'd like to debug/tune it , burn it in on a test stand. Once that's complete i'll look around for a roller to drop it in or......

thx,
Al

P.S. I'm Autocad, Solidworks literate so drawings files, 2D or 3D are a good thing.

It is more easier using your own chassis for an engine stand,than building your own stand,it will take you even more time to set it up ,than doing it on your car,trust me I have done this before, (and I do this for a living),used once,did start up the engine ,oh look how cute it looks on it! thats about it .,cheers,Antonio.

Wayne,
Thanks. I had to go out to the garage to get my book. Yes like that one. Any other pix? Good detail on the mounting and oil system. What is a good system for fuel? I'll probably always have one engine underway, at any given time, so I will probably need to set it up for both high and low pressure systems. I can design my own based on the pix, but I was hoping that someone out there had done that already and maybe had drawings or even better yet CAD files.

Antonio,
What problems did you have?

All you need is something to hold the engine off the ground. Use the stock motor mount and make some feet for it, add something for the tranny, nothing fancy just something to hold it up, thats all there is to it.

For oil , add another couple of feet and the oil tank. For fuel add a small fuel can and a hose, make it a couple feet taller than the rest of the engine and make sure it can't tip over easily. Thats it, no rocket science.

The engine runs so smooth that you needn't worry about it jumping off the mount or even rocking it.

PS if you have a hard time figuring it out from this, just mount it in the car and try it.
