Engine stand for a CTD?

I need an engine stand for my 12 valve, Bobcat bought one from harbor freight or something and did not recommend that I buy one. Does anyone know where I can buy one?

Look into OTC I know here at school we have a 5.9 on a stand, and its a rather large OTC stand.

Wouldn't be too hard to make one, either.

I'm told a 4-legger from your favorite hot rod parts house will do. I got one from Summit, but I haven't hung my engine on it yet. Scott at MassDiesel told me that's all he uses, so I'm going to give it a try.

Make sure you use all gr 8 bolts and nuts. I've had an all steel blown 426 with 14-71 blower and injector on a 4 leg stand and it is wiggly to say the least. Add another couple hundred pounds and it must be real shaky. The shop I worked at finally built our own out of 3" x 4" 1/4 wall tube and 1 inch thick mount plate with larger wheels.

Yeah - be sure it'll safely hold 1100#s!

The stand that Hillbilly posted is by far the best , you can hang a C15 cat off of one of those , crank the handle and roll it up on it's end , or right upside down,

these are good too, slightly less functional though:

This might be overkill, but it would work.

Overkill ain't bad though, 6000 lbs.

You can buy another engine for that money.

Killer stand though.

Wow - that Northern stand is nice, but it's a lot more $$$ than we'd make it for!
