Engine stand

Recommended Posts

Somewhere I saw a picture of a heavy duty engine stand that looked similar to a pallet jack. Does anyone have one or a picture? I’m looking to build one.

I've got a home made one our spare parts endt676 is sitting in. It's got legs bolted to the flywheel housing and I forget what up front. I think that engine has threaded bosses on the side/front of the engine, because we had the timing cover off it a year ago to steal the camshaft.  Legs are welded to C channel bases that are web section up so our forklift can come in and grab it from the side.

Legs are just angle iron, nothing special. Our legs are short though, we built it for storage not working on.

I made legs for my 673.  Bolted on.

The one I remember looked just like a hand powered pump pallet jack. I think it was grey in color and had a cat on it i think. I don’t have a forklift but I do have several jacks I can use to make one.   I want it to be semi portable

Make one on wheels. My book says an e7 weighs about 2300-2500 depending on dry or wet. So 4 600# casters should hold it nicely.

Looks like a work stand to me! Oil pan looks like it can come off, and much taller and you won't be able to see under the valve covers! Pretty much identical to ours, except ours is set up for a forklift coming in the side.

Not real savvy on IDing motors, but I'm guessing Cummins?

Yes.  8.3l 505 cubic inch.  6ct.     Basically a big brother to what’s in the dodge pickups.   As I type this I think I’m in your back yard.  I’m switching trailers at the Lowes in Havertown.

The stand looks good!  OTC has some nice stands for heavier engines but I don't recall one that looks like a pallet jack.

What project is the Cummins going to be installed in?

It’s replacing my 673 in the B.   I got a rto6613 to go behind it.  I found a steering box I think will work to move it to the outside of the frame and add power steering.   Going to go do some measuring  today on the box.

You can get about 375hp out of those reliably but don't push more than that; in fact I'd limit to 350. Had several on generator sets and they can snap a crank with a hard load impressed upon them. It's a more robust design through the main saddles than the 5.9ltr, (360ci) engine and does fine when treated respectfully.

Buddy with garage said he will give it 300-350 and around 1000ftlb very reasonably

Havertown is 20 or so miles from me, not quite my back yard but if you're from out of state then yes, you were certainly out my way!
