Engine stand

Does anyone have any pics of there homemade engine stand? I'm thinking of building another one for my 7.3 motor. Just want to see different styles.

Thanks

Re: Engine stand

Remember that the 7.3 weighs about 1000lbs so build appropriately.

You can get one from Harbor freight for less than the steel to build one. I got a 2K std for like 80 bucks.

I picked one up on monday and set the engine on it yesterday. I left the hoist in place with just a little slack in the chain just in case. There was still the same slack tonight. I was more worried about the bolts I got than the stand. I couldn't find any hardened metric bolts that were long enough so I went with the standard bolts. So far, so good.

Re: Engine stand

I saw a pic on one last night, sorry don't remember where. But it bolted to the 4 corners of the engine stand and would rotate in the center of the engine.
