By the way, this is my boss' stand. He has a '29 Pickup that was his wife's uncles truck on a farm here in the area. They sent the motor to be rebuilt and the dude never returned it and it's now gone. Of course should have never done it anyway being the truck is very rough needing a full restoration.

boothboy Brian what you have is a Model T base mounted engine stand. It will work on a Model A block since it has two attach points at the bottom of the block that match on both the T and the A. On the T block two of the holes on the side match two holes on the stand. On the A only one.
Is there a FoMoCo or Ford casting mark on yours? If so it probably came from a Ford Garage and was sold by Ford. I think I see a casting mark in your picture. I'm wondering about this because your mount looks like it was mounted stationary to the floor judging by the base. If it is stamped or cast with a Ford insignia it might be worth some bucks.
The question I was trying to get you to answer about how it attached to the rear of the block was a trick, The stand attaches to the side of the block.

Looks like it would work on either an A or a T. Maybe that's why there's two sets of upper mounting holes. Here is a modern version:

I need to check out that link so I can get a little better understanding of it.

So boys and girls, what is this?

Brian

I believe... That is a 1926-7 Model T Ford engine rebuilding std. **************
It would save me having to build an accessory to do my 3 T engines. Note it will only fit those 2 years of T engines!!!
