That whole roof looks like something I've seen before. I just can't seem to grasp why it looks so familiar.
Maybe too much BRAIN BLEACH or Crystal Palace.

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.

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.

Well it appears I don't know! From what I understand there was a Model A motor on it.

On your picture of the Cast Iron whirly-gig.
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!!!
