The other day I showed the sliding adapter I made for my engine stand. The pivot can be between #2 and #3 for just the block or engine, or you can slide it over to #4 for the engine with transmission.





Today's project was using a couple of pieces of pipe scrap to make a longer pivot that lets the engine rotate 360. This will let me turn the engine upside down to make painting the bottom easy.



There are a couple of other changes I want to make later, but this will let me get the painting done now.

Steve, that is very cool. I just made a stand for my engine and was thinking about an adaptor for my other engine stand - modern type. Can I ask what size steel tube did you use? 1/8th walled thick enough? That's what I have some of lying around. Really like your idea, think I will try to make one like it. Thanks for sharing.

I'm sure 1\8" would be fine, perhaps with a 45 angle brace where the pipe forms a T at the top of the post. I would have used 1/8" myself, but this 3\16" was all I could find at the scrap yard. I had to get something, because the 1/4" I had here was just too ungodly heavy. If you do add a brace, just be sure it allows room for the pan ear to pass.

Steve, couldn't find it, could you post a link? Tnks, Ken

BTW, I'd suggest that you put outriggers on that lone caster that's out by itself. Don't ask how I figgered that one out.
