Engine Stands

PostPost by: Woodboater » Mon Apr 29, 2019 7:00 pm

Does anyone in the US make the ones that bolt on either side of a Kent block for storage? I need some for my motors and don't have the time to fab any.

The stands were designed for dry sump engines so you will have to add some type of extension to the bottom of the stand prevent the stock sump from touching the floor. My photos will explain what is needed.

Don't totally agree with the comment that engine stands were designed for dry sump engines as I have a similar engine stand that has been manufactured that holds a wet sump twin cam perfectly...

it appears that the Pegasus one was designed for dry sump (at least they claim so...), hence lower height, while other similar stands are a bit higher and can accomodate LTC wet sumps (e.g. TTR's TTR-EA-023 , Burtons's ENGSTAND etc no affiliation)
