Re: Engine Test Stand
When I pulled my old 350 and TH350, I didn't want to leave them sitting on the ground, so I made a big U-shaped cradle out of scrap 4x4's and bolted it to the engine mounts, and set the trans mount on another scrap of 4x4.
Sometime after that, I saw videos on youtube of kids trying to blow up junkyard engines in a garage--they were just sitting the engine mounts on top of cinder blocks and the engines were bouncing around a bit when they hit the throttle.
When I got ready to sell the 350, I had a couple of people ask to hear it run. I made up a wiring harness, and bolted a 2ft long 4x4 to the trans mount (in addition to the cradle that bolted to my engine mounts). It worked great. I was just doing quick "hear it run", so I didn't put a cooling system on it, but it would be easy to mount a radiator and electric fan on some 2x4's...
