Re: Cranking a motor on the stand?
If the motor is new, never been run, you probably don't have the full benefits of rings being sealed, so I would suggest running a leak down. Be safer. I have seen a few guys crank the motor and run it on a typical stand, but I would make sure I have some way to lock the motor down to keep from spinning or torquing over. Can you imagine a running motor spinning on an engine stand?
