If you are DIY type and can weld, you can make one up in short fashion. This one features bent 1/2 plates that contact the case surface. It does not allow you split the case, but once you are down that far weight wise, it would probably be ok.

It is mounted to a cheapo engine stand. You will want to fashion up a drip pan also. These cheap stands are rated to 750 lbs, but I fashioned a wood post underneath until I stripped some weight off in the teardown just for insurance.

It is tough to justify spending $300-$500 for something you plan on using once
