Bench top motor stand for AV7 (prototype)

Ok, it took me a little longer to figure this out than i thought. I'm not a man who doesn't admit his faults, were all human. Although this may look like a good stand it has a major flaw. I took my exhaust off two days ago to put it in my parts washer to soak. When i was building this stand, my main concern was being able to remove the flywheel, remove the clutch and use the starting tool i made for the flywheel. The whole time i was "Mocking Up" the stand, i didn't have the exhaust on it.... I need to reconfigure the mount where the spring would be so my exhaust will fit on it. I did take into consideration the height for the exhaust. I have clearance. By the time i got to the lower rear mount, i was forearm deep in a dirty 30. This was made from left over steel i had from a couple projects. I plan to take the hour to fix it and i will be in business. THEN i will fire it up on it. I will have a video in a day or two. I'm musky fishing tomorrow so no tools will be touched.

bump.

Re: Bench top motor stand for AV7 (prototype)

cool! I like it. seems simple enough. you should drill some holes and mount the whole structure, because vibration.

Re: Bench top motor stand for AV7 (prototype)

Mount motor, mount pulley, then you can test variation, with other pulleys and cylinder setups. and belt lengths....

That thing sucks. It no glory hole 9000. Keith Bright makes the best ones. You should ask him for advice on how to make your bette or prolly just kill yourself.

Re: Bench top motor stand for AV7 (prototype)

Excellent setup!

could you drive electric motor on the back with a variable load on it? the electric motor would act as a generator and with changing the load, say 10 light bulbs on a dimmer switch, you could increase or decrease the load on the engine and test the engine under load. and than you could load those light bulbs and light up your work space and blow a loud load over your laundry while laughing and lounging on a lazy river.

Why not just make an engine dyno?

Re: Bench top motor stand for AV7 (prototype)

Engine dyno not out of question...lol .. I do plan to do the electric motor idea for variater tuning if it will work. I just love to fabricate. thanks for the compliments and thanks for the jokes. Hey, I'm having fun and that's what its all about.

Very Nice, but ya I'd try rigging up a pulley and an electric motor, or just an electric motor with a pulley on it. You can use it to start the engine and then once it's running you can turn it off and it becomes a load

Re: Bench top motor stand for AV7 (prototype)

You could get a squirrel cage fan and run it belt drive off the engine. Then it can be used to provide a load, and cool the engine. Engine cooling will be very important if you plant to run it for more than a minute or two.

Re: Bench top motor stand for AV7 (prototype)

Excellent feedback! I like the fan idea. I could even mount a pulley to a blender and make frozen alcohol drinks for the chicks in the shop.. it would be pulley frenzye !!! and someone will be certain to get laid. !!!! :)

Re: Bench top motor stand for AV7 (prototype)

Very cool idea, I would bolt it down though. Looks good!
