When it’s time to tally up the build cost of that project car, we’re guessing most builders don’t want “engine stand” to even figure in — we wouldn’t either. To get that block off the floor you usually have to make a choice: Go cheap and risk it, or go big and have the cost cut into your build. The 1,000lb.-engine cradle from TP gives you the best of both worlds by being both cheap, at $33, and sturdy.
There’s no magic to it — four points of contact support the motor from a four-wheeled base. Just lower almost anything other than a big block into the mounts and bolt them up. Roll it where you need it, or just build it where it sits without worrying about anyone bumping it.
