I can't fine one that the engine stand is in.

All I can find are the pics I took when I bought the Sam's club items.

I'm prepping a 350 SBC to paint today (Lime Green), so I will take pics of my home made engine stand (my uncle built it yrs ago and its had SBCs BBCs & a pontiac 389 & 400 and Ford 390, Buick 455 on it), looks like the upright neck was fastened to the floor in a factory or machine shop at one time. it has wheel bearing type bearings in the neck. it has a big type wing nut (wing nut is a factory piece that a 3/4 or 7/8 threaded nut with 4" wings) but loosen the wing nut you plus theres a spring loaded leaver that catches in notches on the back of the neck.

That is one sweet engine stand!! It would hold an elephant! Wonder what it held before or what it was used for. Your uncle was very creative.

I'm not sure what it was B4, looks kinda like it was fastened to a floor in a machine shop or factory, it has big bearings in the neck, like spindle wheel bearings. the wing nut thing tightens everything from moving. plus the lever on top sits in a grove to lock the neck from moving & you gota push it down outa the grove to turn it. it's a bit tall for me (I'm 5'11) he was 6' 4" tall. I know it's had SBCs BBCs BBFs & 455 Buicks and Pontiacs 389 400 & 455. he was a true ole school hot rodder ! I grew up living next to him with a small salvage yard on his 4 acres. he built me Pontiac and BBF motors, and built me 12 bolt & 9" rearends. He built a bad ***** 51 chevy 2dr fastback car with a strong performance straight 6 cylinder with 3 2barrle carbs and headers and a m22 4 speed & a narrower 31 spline ford 9" and home made ladder bar suspension. it was body style of pic I attached, but it was flat black with ansen alum slots. he had the 51 and a 64 chevy impala 2dr with a 402 BBC & a 400th. that he raced both of.

BrianB that Goodyear hoist looks pretty substantial, what is it rated and how much did it, the stand and levelers set you back. Do you think it would lift a Nailhead and Dynaflo up and over a radiator.

It seems to be well made. I have not used it yet myself, but several others on this site have them. The load leveler came with it. I caught mine on sale, but the normal price for the stand is $176.88

I don't see the floor jack on their site anymore. Its 3 pumps to that height. It was a good price as well.

if the top bolt mount is at a different hole in the back of the block, say down a hole or two it would make a difference in the twist effect on the plate, at least that is my opinion.

if this is my engine stand your talking about. my son hung it and did not take the time to center everything as I do so it turns over easier, but this was hung to get painted and not turned over so I left it. but I explained it to him.
