Re: Engine test stand
I'm kinda thinking of a fan driven by the engine (just for the cool factor!), but I doubt I'll bother since this is not meant for long periods running, just short test fires. This may change if I decide to finally do some porting again....
Some real porting tools are on my list when (if) I ever sell something.
YesImLDS I fire the engine by hand cranking in a low gear. Not too hard.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
