Default Re: Operational Engine Stand

an excellent point Tom. I hadn't though of that. A small powerful directed airflow onto the fins should buy me a little use time I would think, I could also ad a temp sensor to the cylinder so that I can cut it off if it gets over a per-determined temp (thinking 315c-ish) a user of this group has a base for sale designed adding a HT engine to a chopper style bike I'm thinking of building my stand off of, he's offering a great price. Maybe I could have the motor turning the fan blades used to cool the engine! I just thought of that. I've received some great design ideas via PM from some users as well as advice and offers for parts. Thanks to all. I'll be sure to post pics when I get the project underway.
