beefing up engine stand

I have a Harbor freight engine stand that was used once to hold a SBC 350 long block, and has been partially dissasembled ever since.. I was planning to put my 460 Ford on it, but after getting it out, realising it was the tri wheeled 1, I decided it wasn't safe, altho the 460 is only ( ) 640 lbs, it should be ok by 110lbs, I don't want 640 lbs of motor to tip over... I was thinking, if I welded on the "H" for the 2 front casters like the 1k lbs model, and a couple 'stringers' to support the upright, this should be good to a true 640 lbs big block right?
