Re: Is it normal to build an engine test stand?

Thanks GB I run it in my shop, using two ten foot exhaust hose under the garage door, I think that should give me enough back pressure. I'm a firm believer to run on a test stand, not to break in,...

Re: Is it normal to build an engine test stand?

I like to run the engines prior to installation. Checking for all vitals. No need to over do it but I go through two heat cycles in order to re-torque the heads. much easier on my test stand.

Re: Stripped threads in valuable intake- Time Sert vs. TIG and redrill or other

be careful and use the inserts they work very well just don't overtighten them. if all fails you can still weld and re-tap but that's
a very risky and one must be very skilled to do.

brake equalizers

Has anyone come out with brake equalizers for the 1941 style brakes with the fixed bottom pin? I used them on my 1935 and they work great. Flathead Teds if I remember correctly.
