My new test stand

Post  Slick049 on Sun Jan 06, 2019 5:52 am

So I got a couple more engines cleaned up.  And the UPS truck brought me a bottle of go juice.  WOOHOO!.  Am finally going to get to make some noise.  But first things first I needed a test stand, as the model(s) are not yet built, for a new engine that requires a break-in, so went digging around the piles looking for bits and pieces to craft a stand.  Ended up with a piece of aluminum shower stall frame and a chunk of walnut.  I'm semi-confident this will suffice for the .049s.  Seems solid enough.


Still sorting through everything, along with acquiring some replacement parts.  I messed up a cylinder trying to remove an apparently welded in glow plug during the previous cleaning session so I "won" some extra parts from that adventure.  


And gathered all the old handles and control lines into one carrier.


Found a box of props.  One can never have too many props.


As the collection grows, I'm looking to trade off the Enyas and McCoys, if anyone's interested.  Gonna focus on .049s.  PM if you need/want any of the bigger engines.

Glow heads, gaskets, and heat are all you will ever need for the .049's if they are/were treated properly.

Better save those Enya's. Pretty soon you will want to move up in displacement. A new needle for the .29 and a few hours in the A/F boil pot will work wonders. Bet they aren't even broken in yet.

Nice job on the test stand, looks sturdy enough to avoid vibration.
