Engine Start / Test Stand Plans - Ford, Gm, Mopar:
Start, run and tune your engine before installing it into your car. I am a muscle car hobbyest, and like most, I have limited garage space for storing large equipment. I designed this engine start/test stand so that I could be sure my rebuilt engines were ready to run before installing into my newly restored cars. When I first looked around for starter stands, I couldn't find anything inexpensive or collapsible. With some tube steel, a drilland a welder (you must be able to weld), you can build one of these in a weekend.
This stand collapses to less than 9" deep to be stored against a wall or in a corner out of the way. It can be adapted to fit most V8engines (I'verun my Ford Cleveland engine shown in the picture and also my 454 Chevelle engine on it). The wheels are designed to extend out on each side for a wider base for higher torqueing engines.
This sale is for a complete set of plans to build this engine stand. This sale is for plans only - no materials, parts or engines included. Plans include all dimensions, instructions,list of materials required, illustrations and pictures. There are21 pages of plans and instructions, including a wiring diagram and materials list. Plans arein PDF formatand will be emailed to you upon receipt of payment (allow 1 to5 days, as I sometimes travel). You will also receive a link to my web site with several photos of my stand for reference. This site also includes pictures and videosof this stand that others have built from theseplans.
If you are unable to print the plans, I can print and mail the plans to you for an additional $6.00 (U.S. only). The plans print on 8 1/2"x11" pages, a total of23 pages. You must contact me and let me knowthat you wish to have printed plans prior topaying. I have priced this item low as I am more interested in supporting the home auto enthusiast than in making a lot of money (but a little extra money isn't a bad thing).

I can only testify that I have built and used this stand to start and run my Ford and Chevy V8 engines without any problems.
