The Ecotec engine on a swivel stand is designed for student instruction and practice covering engine mechanical inspection, disassembly, measurement and reassembly. The engine is securely mounted to a heavy duty rotating device equipped with an automatic lock to allow full 360 degree rotation. A steel mounting plate is used for engine mounting that allows full access for rear main seal and flywheel service. Each engine comes equipped with a transmission flywheel (manual or automatic). The engine starting station contains all components and systems necessary for the starting and running of the Ecotec engine. All necessary engine systems connections are provided to allow live operation of each swivel engine stand.
