Anyone ever purchased / used an Engine Start Stand? I'm looking for one to run the 327 after the third coat of POR.

Considering the stand below but looking for options.

Thanks,
Rob

if you have an old sub frame you could use it as an engine starter

I alwaws thought that the best engine start stand was the car the engine was built for...
A buddy of mine has a homebuilt one, its just a novelty type thing, since You can't put a load on it...although it makes for some good shop beer drinking conversation..
Note:If You get one of these, MAKE SURE that You don't start the engine with just a flexplate on it, start it up with a manual trans flywheel that is correct for the engine.....otherwise the RPM's will go sky high with just a crack of the throttle ...(I've seen it done)....just a been there saw that .02 ...Good Luck !

Here's how I've always done it, in the assembled chassis, before dropping the body:

Hmmm, just wondering. Is the air scoop necessary?
