911 Engine test stand
Would like to build an engine test stand. Any good picture of what you have or like. Thanks, Mark

If you do a search there are probably a half dozen examples already listed.

oh well, here's mine:
Hi, I guess "it depends": mine is super simple, just to make sure the engine runs and do some basic tuning of the MFI and the throttle linkages. It helped me identify a small leak from a base cylinder gasket, and also some ageing brings on the oil console.

It's basically just a recouped frame fixture onto which the rear mounting bolts are secured. I even use long threaded rods to raise, lower and adjust the engine height. The ancillary components (electrics, pump, oil tank) are just secured with screws and some scrap metal.

I'm setting it up again this weekend, so I can send more details if you want

Happy tinkering, and show us what you come up with!
