Re: engine stand

it should have a few adjustable arms coming off it, basically u just mount it to where the gearbox bolts to, depends what sort aya have but theyre generally all similar

Re: engine stand

Get some big strong bolts with big nuts and some big washers and put em through where the bellhousing bolts go through. You'll prolly think the bolts will snap but it's the way it's designed

Re: engine stand

You want a stand that can hold 500kg. Like with jacks and stands, you want something thats rated about double of what you lifting.
