[TR] Engine stand

I seem to remember years back a couple gentleman cutting up a Healey 6 
cyl block to make casts for an aluminum block build for a race car. 
IIRC... the oem was something in the order of 700 lbs. The aluminum one 
came in around half (or less) of that.�� So in my view, ANY engine is 
fine on these stands if it can handle a 700 lbs healey block sticking so 
far our 4's and 6's are just fine!

...think mine came from Pep Boys on sale... (two wheel up front version)
