[TR] Engine stand

I purchased an engine stand from Harbor Freight, mounted our Ford van's V6 engine on it and used that setup to disassemble, rebuild and reassemble the entire engine. No issues. Even though the V6 has a cast steel block with aluminum heads and aluminum intake manifold, it is still a lot of weight and I had zero issues with the engine stand. Very stable and easy to roll around. Now planning to use the same stand to rebuild the TR3's engine.

I was at a friend's house last night and he had an Austin Healey engine on one of these stands.  Even the TR6 engine is but a mere wisp compared to one of these lumps of cast iron.

You are being paranoid.  Many years ago when I did my first engine I did
the math on the load capacity of the 4 bolts.  You'll be fine, unless
you have one of those extremely rare engines that weighs 20,000 pounds.
