This particular engine stands cradles the engine perfectly level straight up and down. This engine stand does not tilt the engine either forward or back. Another key purpose of the stand is that you can mount your flywheel, clutch, and transmission while mounted on the stand. This gives you a completely mobile swap to maneuver around. You can also complete simple tasks such as accessory swaps or installations, cleaning, even assembling your top end if necessary while mounted on the stand. Storing and transporting, even shipping with our engine stands also works great.
