Would like to see pictures of your engine stands. Looking to build a stand that will support the engine while out of the vehicle. On wheels would be even better. I am sure there are a number of great ideas out there.

Heres an easy conversion for a harbor freight type stand. KGB

I have a couple of these made for T rolling engine stands, Lang's sells, made in USA by one of our hobbyist's. Neat, folds up when not in use.

Here is a stand I built awhile back. It was to pick up and haul a engine with, and also to store it till I installed it. Very light, moves very easily with the larger wheels. The only thing I would change if I build another is to move the rear wheels back about 3 or 4 inches. It could tip up onto its tail because of the transmission weight behind the wheels. Its not bad now, and you have to actually try to tip it up for it to tip. But, that is somewhat of a good feature. By scotching the rear wheels and tipping it up onto the rear of the trans, makes it very easy to put the stand on the engine or take it off. I just put a piece of plywood for the engine to stand on, while installing the stand to the engine.

I bought this one for $15 at an auction and made the rotating part myself.


I changed to a sliding adapter. You can have the pivot at #4 when the engine and transmission are together, and between #2 and #3 for the engine without the transmission.
