Re: How do YOU store spare engines?

I have a system of brackets that bolt engines together so I can stack them up to the ceiling. The bottom has room for a pallet jack. 2 brackets on the bell housing and one on the rear mount with 3 holes for EM or LM brackets.

I'll try to remember to get some next time I have some shop time. Probably Thursday. They are really cool but way too much work to build.

I store mine standing up on the bell housings and have a bench on top for the transaxles. I only recently have been able to store all my stuff in one location after having it in many different spots

I actually remembered. Eventually.
The engines are level and far enough apart to clear LM air cleaner assemblies.
The parts are modular so I can stack as many as I have room for and the rear mount has 3 holes to work with EM or LM engine brackets.

Lots of suggestions for the physical part.
From a protection standpoint, when you have engines or transmissions that you know will be in storage like that for a long period of time, you should get a vapor misting oil.

This is an oil that give off a vapor that sort of fogs the inside of the engine or whatever to keep it protected.

You use about 6 to 8% of the normal volume of oil, or about 10 to 12 ounces per engine.
