engine tester ?

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Now you need a angle drive from a power unit so you can belt it to a water pump and load the engine.
Best,

Thinking. You might want to add in a lengthy horizontal brace, front and back, across the floor to stabilize the engine torque during engine start up.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Looks good Boss. Glad ya got that gas tank a lil ways away just so it doesn't vibrate down onto the engine.

Now you need some good stickers like them dealerships got.....
