I’m looking (go to) for one too. But not for engine builds.

Why do you want one?

I think I am down to my last original unit, and the two different prototypes I made for the Sunex stands. Unfortunately, the Sunex stands have too short a wheel base to support the 928 engine in the extended position, so I never made any more.

If someone really needs to borrow one, I can loan it out.... but not for something like a 5-year build. I have at least 8 engines here, so I will need it myself at some point.

They are pretty easy to make, and I already have the drawings. I never made or had the necessary flywheel lock tool quoted. Kind of worthless without that piece, but you often don't even see the factory yokes with the matching lock.

If I get a minimum of 5 people to commit to buying a set, I would go back and check the lock tool design and get quotes on having something made.

I have WAY too many parts on the shelf here from stuff that people said they wanted and then only sold a handful of. I honestly don't even have the room to inventory more parts.

Hans, you probably have stuff I’d buy in 1/2-dozen or more quantities that I don’t even know you have.

You should gather up and post an inventory.

I assemble the case on a work table and then transfer to my geared stand with my engine picker.

Here is the 3D model of the factory part with the flywheel lock:

It would only take me a few minutes to modify the design for use with a standard 4-arm stand. We just need to get a couple people interested before I go back and double check the lock tool and send for quotes.

I am looking into the flywheel lock.

I am going to order a couple off the shelf parts to see if any have the same tooth pattern. Will keep everyone updated.

Excellent graphic!
