This is a test bed for a single cylinder gasoline or diesel engine with computer control.
The engine is connected to a dynamometer on the test bed by a coupling with a safety guard. A fuel tank with a fuel flow and an air flow measuring instruments are on a stand next to the engine.
Data display, analysis, and operation control are by computer (separately supplied).
The dynamometer requires outside water supply for cooling.
