Looking at buying an adapter to fit the T motor to my engine stand. I see that Lang's sells 2 different types-an adapter plate or a complete adapter that fits into the round hole in the stand. Any comments on which I should buy. It won't be for everyday use, only occasional use. The plate is about 1/2 the price of the complete adapter.

The less expensive "plate" is not user friendly to access the center main bearing nuts !

We used a piece of angle iron , drilled to hold the bottom of the engine and also the the stand's arms. Just made a bracket.

This is probably the best one available and you can buy it directly from the people that make it:

I use my KR Wilson engine stand. Kinda hard to find though.

I have a Manley, a KR Wilson and a modern with the better adapter available - I use them all.

Thanks guys. Great info. I am leaning towards making my own since the collapse of "free trade" between the US and Canada. There is now a 25% tariff (duty) on steel products crossing the border. Add this to the 25-30% exchange rate when buying the US dollar, it adds at least 50% to anything I now order from the US. Oh well, maybe our respective politicians will regain their sanity in the near future. (We can dream)

All you need is a piece of angle and a couple of spacers cut from iron pipe. The angle uses two of the pan bolts and is notched to clear the one in the middle.
