|Adapter for Continental and Lycoming engine overhaul stand.|
I dont know why I thought this item was made of steel, but I did. Figured all I would have to do was weld it to a nice heavy piece of drill stem and I would have a motor stand. But NO..... this item is made of virgin white nylon! It did, however, make a dandy template to use to trace its outline on a piece of 1/2 plate to cut with a plasma cutter, grind, drill, smooth and finish to then weld onto said piece of drill stem. It will go in between the 1/2 steel plate and the crank of my Lycoming O-320.
It is a type of durable plastic. The previous units were made of wood, but this material is more durable.
If you order a complete engine stand, this will be included. It has a SAE prop bolt spacing for Continental and Lycoming engines.
The stand only had two holes in it, you would attach this to the stand, and then attach the engine to this adapter.
