For my peace of mind I used 1/2" bolts and a 16" length of 3/8 X 1 1/2" flat stock as a diaganal brace. That way it can be unbolted if you want to store it. I also put a vertical 2 X 4 just long enough between the horizontal leg and the engine pan to take the "hanging" weight off of the bellhousing bolts if the complete engine is going to be stored on the stand for a short while. Yea I know its overkill but I don't have to worry about anything.
