Who makes the best engine stand??????

I know this has been covered before ALOT!!!!

I can't find the thread anywhere. Anybody (Danny C) got a link to it?

Or just post what works for you. The one Ihave says 700lbs, but looked weak with my 357 shortblock on it. Looking to buy another one for the BBF stuff.....

I'd like it to hold a complete engine without trouble

Thanks

John

I have a powerbuilt from my local Checkers that I'm happy with. It holds 1200# according to the sticker on the side and I've had a 460 with iron heads, intake and all accessories hanging on it

The Sea Racing Engine stands are the best :P
However they are VERY rare and VERY expensive :lol: :P






Chuck got one from Harbor Freight a few weeks agot with the front legs that splay OUT like an engine puller. Much more stable than the other Three wheeled T type stands that I have. It holds his Iron headed BBF pretty good.

Thanks Damon,

I'm looking at that Harbor Freight one only because I can go and pick it up. I am not going to pay to have one shipped to me.....

John,

Main reason I asked Chuck to get the "spread" legged stand is for safety reasons when moving the stand. Not as easy to tip over IMO

In the future we may weld on a brace to help support it :idea:

this one is available from NAPA for around $115. They work well also.
