Engine stand holder

I have a feeling I already know the answer to this but I wanted to get a second opinion.

I just ordered a 1000# engine stand for my 351w engine. The problem I have is that one of the 4 holders is missing. I contacted HF (yeah I know) and they are sending me a new holder but it will probably be 1-2 weeks before I get it.

My question is; can the engine be mounted to the stand with 3 holders for a short period of time? I don't plan to work on the engine for a little while but want to get it out of the way so I can start doing other work that can't be done with the engine in place. Is that a terrible idea or is it fine provided I don't start rotating the engine on the stand?
