Engine Running Stand Wiring Diagram

September 23, 2010 | Troubleshooting & Repair


I realized making a fast on the floor hook up to test out an engine was not rocket science; but I could never find a good "how to" diagram that had an "in car" type set up. I designed one that uses all 356 components, and I am building it now out of an old trans case, small gas tank, etc. Using this diagram, a person can set up an engine to run on the floor that will test out gauges, switch, generator, senders, volt regulator, starter and other components. Much easier to run one of these, test things out, adjust carbs etc, before you go into the car.

Download this diagram as a PDF file, print it out for a garage reference.
