Engine mount dimensions

Postby Ken_Shea » Tue Jan 01, 2013 8:41 pm

Any one have the dimensions for the engine mount hole locations?
When I rebuilt this engine I made a stand, after tripping over it for years finally just tossed it saying to my self, won't be needing that again.
Well... of course it did not turn out that way and need to replace at least one push rod tube o-ring and get everything checked and up to par. Where I am at now with it it's simpler to pull the engine. Would like to have a stand ready when it's pulled.

Thought it would be in the overhaul and/or parts manuals but did not see it.

If any one has it my bet is on Bryan since he likes to draw :D

Ken,

I just sat mine on 2 sawhorses and tied a rope to the roof so it wouldn't tip over.

And NO...I DID NOT lift the engine with that string! LOL

Not sure where I'd find an engine mount around here, but that would be ideal.

Brian,
That would be very quick and right now quick with no hassle may be a very good option.

Thanks guys
