Default Re: Small engine testing equipment

A dynomometer could be fabricated out of something like a torque converter from an automatic transmission where the output shaft could be coupled up to some kind of torque measuring device. Or one could use an old brake band and a drum which could be used to make a prony brake; a one foot shaft and a bathroom scale could be used to make accurate measurements of engine performance.
