Default Best Break In Stand EVER

I had a little fun this weekend . It took no more than 1 hour to get the thing together. Top speed, 20-30mph depending on road conditions.

Now THAT'S the way to take boring and make it interesting. To further your break-in.....perhaps you could add a "tractor pull" event! Ha ha Well done. regards, Rich

That's a great idea Cambo!!!
I just wander why you rotated your cylinder head 90 degrees???

The head fins should go parallel with the crankshaft to avoid overheating...

I need to look into putting a monster truck frame under mine. You have a great concept.

It must be an aussie thing to use sawhorses for engine stands.My 82 dragged mine so i weighed it down with a floorjack on a chain.These guys are way in front of us and your sawhorse is a lot flasher than mine too!

I have an old hyper7 like cambos but the next engine i need to run in is a 220..any ideas??

It must be an aussie thing to use sawhorses for engine stands.
Must be, because i also use a saw horse that i bought from Bunnings for $19.95. Mine has folding steel legs that let me collapse the stand and easily fit it in the car.

There must be a dog running loose somewhere because i use a 3 metre dog chain to secure it to a tree or fence post whenever i test my engines.

I've run engines up to 1.40 2-strokes on my stand.

My sawhorse was so saturated with castor oil; I had to add a new top to it. Neighbors were not home so I gave the Enya a run with 10% Nitro and a MAS 12x6…

Hello that engine sounds like it's sweet and the putt putt sounds good too.Hope you save that old sawhorse top as it's a sin to waste good castor,you could almost smoke that stuff

Tell you what we aussies know how to improvise and a great way to spend the afternoon.Bet you my throttle linkage took less than the five minutes it took you to make yours now all we need is a lazyboy chair and a sixpack of VB.Maybe some good castor wood to smoke and some beachbabes scattered around the place here and there.Anyone for some hired palm trees and a bit of ACKER DACKER rock music??
