Outboard Motor Stand

Postby kevinrude » Sat Apr 14, 2018 1:14 pm

I recently picked up a motor stand that looks like the one in the picture. Quick Question: What is the bracket that the red arrow is pointing for? Thanks.

I always thought it was to put the fuel tank on, but when you tilt the cart WAY back they fall off. Other than that I have no idea?

To carry the pressure tank on? Or a bumper for when you have a bunch of loaded stands and you're trying to display them all on the showroom floor? Not sure.

There was a strap to hold the gas tank in place.

It's for the gas tank.

OK, so the tank would lay as it normally does and then the strap, I guess, would be fastened by the same bolts that are fastening the bracket to the stand? I should be able to find some strapping lying around the house somewhere. Thanks guys.
