6 of 14(43%)would recommend this product to a friend.
When I assembled it I had to bend it in order to get the wheels close to touching the floor. If I had to do over I would have brought it back to the store. This product is NOT "Well Built" and it will be the last Wel Built product I will ever buy.
I would say this product is medium duty. It is heavy enough to use for engine storage, but I wouldn't trust it to hold an engine I was working on. Steel wheels are nice so you can move the thing around easily with a heavy engine mounted on it.
Did not fit my chevy 350 without extensive drilling and grinding. Had to drill and grind out the holes for the dowel pins and rear bolts. Also had to elongate the bolts of the motor mounts. The provided bolts were also the wrong size. Once modifided it worked well.
I purchased two of these these to store customers Mercruiser boat engines which are big and small block Chevy's. The units are rough drilled and required my guys to drill, cut and bend into shape and now not able to return so I am stuck with them. Not bolt on and priced way to high. The supplied cradle to engine bolts are metric and the box said small and big block Chevy. To my knowledge there has never been an SBC or LBC drilled and tapped for metric. Don't recommend.
How disappointing! Says it fist most engines but you can see from the other reviews that it does not. I can assure you it will not work with a big block Mopar. No possible way. Unfortunately I bought this a while back and too late to return.
this engine stand will not work on most engines as stated in description,, works perfect on GM V8s,,, but will not work what so ever at all on any Dodge Chrylser Plymouth Jeep AMC V-8,, and others say it wont work on fords,,, so that is a higher percentage of what it wont work on than what it will work on,,,
I purchased one of these stands for a Ford small-block Windsor series V8. It absolutely will NOT fit any small-block Ford. I did a bit of research and learned that this stand is specifically designed for certain Chevrolet and some Mopar V8s. I'm not sure exactly which ones but, most probably, small-block Chevy V8s. Forget using it for any Ford pushrod V8s. Because the rating and recommendation fields are required, I had to enter something, and I rated it poor, not because I know it to be bad, but because I know that it will NOT fit most engine types, other than the small-block Chevy V8 and probably small-block Mopars.
I have used this item with great success on a Small Block Chevy engine and it has proven better made and of better quality than others that I have used and still use. It fit the engine perfectly and was easy to mount and use. I would definitely recommend this stand to anyone to use on a Chevy engine.
Used the engine stand on a big block chevy. We had to take the exhaust manifolds off and enlarge one hole on the stand where the dowel pin fits. We then bolted the two halves to the engine and then to each other. It felt a little flimsy when we first assembled it, but once it was bolted to the motor it felt much more solid.
I'm not sure what they built this to fit, but I can tell you from experience it WILL NOT fit a ford 351w or a dodge 318 engine. The problem isn't the front slanted pads, it's the rear bolt holes. On the dodge 318 you cannot get any of the bolt holes to line up when you put the dowel in any of the 3 holes. On the 351w it will not mount to the rear holes because the engine hole are not vertical, they are slanted.
Maybe this will fit a Chevy engine, I don't have any of those.
