Looking to purchase an engine stand very soon. Was hoping folks could point me in the direction of a good brand.

If it makes a difference, I only plan to place I4 and V6 motors on it.

TIA

They are pretty much all the same design. Make sure it has the wide legs to prevent tipping. They are $100.00 CDN here.

I wouldn't use a 3 leg stand because of the tendency to tip over if you aren't careful.A 4 leg stand is the safest.I'm sure it will cost more,but,it can save some pain and engine damage by being harder to tip and will be worth more if you try to sell it.

It actually felt quite stable, but I would agree with you that a 4 leg one would probably be more stable. I even rotated the engine several times to work on it with no problems.

I have to start looking for one too. I will need it for my new 3.4 project. I saw some good priced ones in harbor freight.

Here's a better picture of my engine on the el cheapo stand. You will also notice another essential tool in the background. An engine hoist.

I try only to use a 4 point stand, a 3 leg stand, and wheel - roll it over a pebble and it all goes falling to earth - experience speaks
