Dave,

I actually found (and bought) one of those Walker Unit Lifts you use in your video so I'm in for a stand. Do you also fabricate the cradle you have attached to your lift?

Dave sells the cradle's for $140 plus shipping. Search the forum for "Engine Cradle". Look for the thread that says Engine Cradles are done.

Thanks,

Reality: I boxed one up and shipping is around $50, $280 for the stand is the best price I can get at the moment so total with shipping is around $330, I need at least 5 orders so my guy will make them,at this price people drop like Flies,Best I can do at this point,Custom stuff is not cheap.

I've made a few (and will probably do a few more) holding fixtures that use the 4- 1/2" block holes by the oilpan..I cut old bedframe angle,slot each and weld 7/16 bolts on to go thru the block holes,long enough to run a nut down capturing the block..the 'edge' goes against the pan surface,so there's a flat I can weld cross pieces (usually square tubing) to the 'bottom'..

I too would be willing to pay $50 for a complete working drawing and list. Otherwise I have to pay more just to get the stand across the border.

i made and posted a stand for the jack simple and almost free to make. you don'tneed this material any will do but the shape will help. can send more pictures if needed. at that time last winter seemed no one was interested now it is viral.

also made the rear mount and installed it works good but seemed to be no interest.

Here's mine I built for cheap out of 1" black pipe. Have been told by some it may not be sturdy enough. Maybe a gasman can attest to the structural integrity of 1" black pipe. The tee's on the front and left bar are bored to slide and swivel on the pipe. They lock with pins. These have attachment brackets to reach out and support the engine in several locations for transaxle/belhousing or rear cover removal. All joints are threaded together then tack welded except for one rear joint that is a slip fit and welded.
1. (6) 1" Tees
2. (4) 1" St. Ells
3. 8 Lengths of 1" pipe
4. 4 Casters

A power hacksaw, 2 large pipe wrenches, an angle grinder, drill press and a stick welder. Oh and a Lowe's gift card from last Christmas.

Enjoy

that looks good but unless those joints get welded they may turn on you leaving you holding part of the engine up when it start to fall the wheels will not hold they will just slip out from underneath. but the thing does look good. the only thing is your cost you money mine was free and i got paid to build it. but that happens when your in maintenance you get freebe's

"All joints are threaded together then tack welded"
And when I listed "large pipe wrenches" I mean 3' Rigid brand wrenches turned till your neck veins pop out, but I get your point. For the cost of a couple 7018 rods I'll do some more welding.

yea a couple of welds 1/4 way around those pipe joints will make a much safer stand that you can roll around in confidence.
