Engine Start Stand and Swing Axle "Third Wheel"

Postby Bobs68VW » Wed Feb 12, 2014 11:28 pm

Below are pictures of the Engine Start Stand that I built just for my Turbo Engine:

Here's a picture of the "Third Wheel" I built for the Bug while the transaxle is out:

For those of you who don't/didn't know, this is a copy of the actual tool used in dealerships, especially when there were only swingaxle VWs.

What???? The third wheel picture...cause it came through that way.

The size of the stand???? My way of looking at things, is that it's appropriate for its size...very stable, you can move a running engine around if necessary and not worry about a half-assed stand falling over, I can move it in and out of the garage with ease.

Besides, it breaks down into three pieces by removing a few bolts...Then you can easily store it away.

It's just an old tach...useful to me until it dies, then throw it away.

It's not for sale...I'll use it till it dies, then I'll throw it away, unless I can send it back to Stewart Warner to be repaired. And as I mentioned before, I don't do Craigs List...Ebay is a big enough pain in the butt.

I've also got a early 6vdc backup light switch assembly for a Bug...
