Hi, Was dealing with a Briggs Big block today and when I took it off the engine stand, I thought some of you might be interested in the engine and tranny stand we made. We have about 15 adapters for it and we also can bolt blocks to the mtg holes on the PTO side of the block and have the crank go through the pivot pipe. This lets us completely build an engine and rotate up and down as desired. The strips on the bottom will hold drain pans and drip pans (like cookie sheets) and when they aren't there dirt falls right to the floor to be swept up instead of piling up on the base of the stand. We have adapters to hold transmissions etc. We also have square steel tubes on our benches that have tubes that telescope in and adapters that adapt to the engine stand adapters. Will post some pics if anyone is interested.

Due to the camera angle they look a little distorted. Al Eden

Al: Looks real handy. I was thiniking of making an adapter for my automotive engine stand similar to this. I also got to thinking, if a guy ever ran across an old floor stand drill press that had the Spur gear and rack crank lift for the table, it would make a great small engine stand and very adjustable on working height. By all means, more pics with a motor on it would be great.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
