In Reply to: engine stand(cart?) for S14? posted by Alvin Caragay '72 02 on December 18, 2001 at 19:37:07:
Just wondering what the advantage of an "engine cart" would be.
Anyone out there make or have an engine stand for the S14? Or should I call it an engine cart? I'm not talking about the universal engine stands used for rebuilding engines that you can buy at any parts store. I'm talking about the contraption that you bolt an engine down to that allows transportation(maybe has wheels) as well as storage. I'm kinda thinking of what I saw over at Performance Technology Group(PTG) of what they were storing their euro spec E36 M3 engines on. Nice steel carts with wheels, etc. Anyone make or have one of these for the S14 that would be willing to share the specs so I can make my own?
And I know some of you are saying that I should just make one using the motor as a template but that's exactly the problem. I don't have the motor yet. Gonna be buying an S14 for my '72 2002 and need a way to transport is as well as store it before it goes into my 02. Thanks in advance for any replies.
