Engine OUT....how to mount on stand now?

i have just removed engine...removed clutch, flywheel, and rear engine plate. Can i use the holes that hold the rear engine plate on to mount the engine to a stand? the bolts that hold the engine plate on are about 1/4" diameter, i'm wondering if these are big enough to safely hold the engine..and also if the bolt holes are in a strong enough part of the engine. Does anyone have a different way to mount to a stand? my next thought was to take to oil retaining cover off and use those bolt holes. the stand i'm using is your standard harbor freight model with 4 arms that rotate into desired position, with tubes at the point that mounts up to the engine.

I too have a stand,,, Never use it, I have rebuilt many Amphi motor's, (2 right now)
I have a work bench on wheels, and rebuild the motors (or Tranys) on it. block of wood under front mount bracket till all top parts are diss. then flip over and take pan off etc,

I agree with Gord and find a homemade rolling platform more usable. However, early on I did use the same engine stand, and recall removing the bell housing adaptor plate, running bolts through the stand arms directly into the block. Good luck. --Larry

thanks, I'm going with the wood block stand instead of the fancy store bought.....
Gord, what is the stainless? sheet that fits under the carb in your picture? is it a heat barrier?

Yep, he has a BIG one there. I used the bottom of a 5" spring pan under my carb. --Larry
