Engine Stand for 6 cyl P2

Post by RobHomewood » Wed Feb 03, 2021 11:54 pm

Can anyone advise on what sort of engine stand would work for a 6 cyl P2 engine? I want to be able to run the engine if possible. I dont know the weight of the engine with accessories etc or what type is best ie there are some which bolt the engine onto one end only or there are full 4 legged frames with fixings both ends. And do they come with brakes if they are on castors because my garage floor slopes? I would be grateful if anyone could recommend something which doesnt break the bank!
Thanks

You can see what I have in the link, Locally made, simple and low cost. To run it you need a radiator. The engine is estimated as 250 Kg.

Thanks Luli
I would be tempted to try to get a stand made locally but I personally dont have the skills to make one or know where the dimensions would come from. It looks as though the front of the engine is mounted on your stand via the proper engine pointing points but perhaps the rear end just rests the flywheel casing on the frame? And that's a 4 cylinder anyway. So I suspect finding the right ready made stand is the most practical route.
Anyone found one that is suitable?

The flywheel housing rest on the big rubber block which usually rests under the gearbox. a used one, of course.
