Default Hudy Break-in Bench

Hi there, I am wondering does anyone use the Hudy break in bench to break in their engines? or is it better to breakin the engine in the buggy/truggy?

I also noticed the mainfold style is different when using the break in bench from that used in 1/8 off road.

Will I need a different mainfold as used in on road?

Thanks

this will start an arguement but your better off to just run it in mounted in your car.
if you need to run a motor in quick then these are a good idea.

you really need to have air passing over the head and the load of the driveline to get a good run-in. just take your time and follow the manual that came with the motor

Yes I have and do use the Hudy breakin stand . They work great there is plenty of air over the engine . By using something like a GMK engine cozy and heat gun you can keep the engine above 200 and below 240 . I wouldn't be without mine .

I like the break in bench. It's a great tool when you don't have time to babysit a new engine mounted in a car. Yes you do need an on road manifold. You will also need a beer cozy or 1/10 truck tire foam to keep the engine up to temp. I use Aluminum tape. The break in stand moves allot of air over the engine so you will have to keep it insulated to keep the temps up and consistant. Generally I heat cycle 3 or 4 tanks through the engine then mount it in the car and start doing short pulls on a straight away.
