Default Re: Operational Engine Stand

I repair carpet cleaning equipment and truck mounted units for my day job. The carpet cleaning and restoration industry has extremely powerful squirrel fans both small and large that are inexpensive for what they are. I keep thinking of looking on craigslist for a cheap used stationary exercise bike that I can modify and beef up the load applying mechanism and use it as a makeshift dynomometer. In theory it should be realivly easy to come up with a way to mount a bike motor to it and potentially with enough air flow fully tune motors on it. By cutting off the seat, handlebars and such it could be bench mounted also..
