Engine stand

Hi John, I was just up in Brissie for the day.


I have the 560Kg engine stand from Supercheap, and its got that 4-arm sliding mount. I understood from other posts that those are no good for supporting a 930, that you needed or shold have one of those that cradles the flywheel-housing part of the case. Mine's an 83 n/a.

Also, the studs protruding from the engine case are too short, so I'd have no clearance between the stand mount and the flywheel...here are some pics...check out the stud my finger is pointing to in the pic. Three of the studs (at 2:00, 4:00 and 8:00) are too short to protrude beyond the mounting arm sleeves. Only the top-left one is long enough to thread a nut onto.
Are you using one of these?
