Here are a couple more

Cylinder holder - keeps the cylinders down as you rotate the crank to install other pistons. 3 3/4" long

Stud tester - allows you to torque-up and test the studs/threads before the motor is built. 7 3/4" long

And another:

Flywheel holder - Holds the flywheel while you torque or remove the bolts holding it to the crankshaft.

Someone asked about the length of the pushrod tube remover... It's 5 1/4" long. The cut end is expanded to fit over the tube being removed. Sorry to show it twice but this puts the dimension and the picture in the same place.

A couple of things are basic like suggested in the manual
Cylinder/crank protector


Plastic tubes to hold the jugs in as shown above


My engine stand is a little more unique


And of course my valve spring tester


Never shot a picture of my spring compressor except in use. Just a threaded bar with big washers and nuts.


And various adapters for the hydraulic press to disassemble and assemble


This was my U-joint puller that didn't work. Finally broke loose in the second hydraulic press somewhere around 12 tons.

I made this tool to rotate the engine I built, it bolts right to the harmonic balancer, to adjust valves and set the timing.
