    Engine test stand for the 3.4 dohc?

    I'm thinking about building one. Just wondered if anyone had already done it.

    Are you wanting a stand to test run the engine or just to hold it while you are working on it.

    I want to run the engine on the stand (Not under load.) I want to insure the operation of the engine prior to installing it in my car. Since I have four of these engines, I thought it would be worth having such a device.

    I've decided to modify one of my 4-wheel engine stands by adding bracketry for the front engine mount and for mounting a radiator with fan assembly (Both from a Lumina Z34.) I'll, also, fabricate a battery box and brackets for mounting the ECM, coil packs and a control panel (With keyed ignition, radiator fan switch, tachometer, oil pressure, water temp, air/fuel and vacuum gauges.)
