I'm looking for an economic adapter to attach my type 4 to a harbor freight engine stand. Any help would be appreciated. A few montha ago I saw a crescent shaped piece of metal that allowed the use of a std motor stand.

Thanks

I just designed one to cut on my cnc machine, can make an extra one if you like.

How about $40 cover the metal cost and ground shipping. Its 3/4" thick. I think I have worked out any bugs, but cant guarantee you wont have to modify it for some unseen reason or add additional spacers.

I can cut a few more but, I hope harpo will bolt it up and see if there are any modifications I need to make. I haven't had time to make one for myself let alone try it out. I did check the dimensions and fit with the one I did cut, don't expect any problems. Also I'm on the west coat for the next week or more so I can't do anything for about two weeks.

Check to see if you can get it off without removing the 10mm engine/trans stud. I can't get my iron one off over the flywheel without removing the stud!

It's thick enough we should be able to add any cut out we need. If I make more I may use thinner stock. I think that was 6065 I sent you.

Nice stand. I already have a similar one and enjoy it very much. Mine connects to two arms only.
The design suggestions I have are:
1. Make sure you can drive out the piston pin on the cylinder closest to the support. If you push it towards the plate, it may be blocked by the plate. If you push it away from the plate, the plate might obstruct the hammer/rod you use to push it.
2. A nice to have addition would be something to lock the flywheel in place in order to open/close its bolts.

Thanks for the help,

I tried to make it so all 4 arms could be used and you could remove one if needed. Looks to me just that just two arms would have a lot of flex once it gains some weight.

I will add somthing for locking the standard flywheel too, great idea.

I did receive the adapter and it looks great. I will be on vacation and will not have an opportunity untill the 14th to test fit.

Thanks

Could you also add something that would allow to mount starter. That would enable you to use it for running engine on a test stand.
