Stand and Deliver!

Stand and Deliver!


The latest addition to armoury is an engine/gearbox stand with the Model B Gearbox swap in mind

SGS do a nice stand at a very reasonable price so duly ordered, you can see here

Bit limited for storage so this is a nice size, fingers crossed it’ll fit in the available storage.

Will post further once unpacked and assembly is underway!

  1. Bill McCoskey – I was born with a greasy wrench in my mouth instead of that silver spoon. My parents and their friends all said I could tell them make, model and even year of most cars by the time I was 5. I bought my first car [1948 Packard] at age 14, and by the time I had a driver's license, I had 2 more Packards. My education was electrical and electronics engineering, but also having ADHD, I realized it just wasn't going to be a good idea to sit behind a desk 5 days a week. After school, The US Army decided to draft me, sending me to mechanics school. On arrival in Central Germany, I discovered the attraction to rare and unusual European cars. Once back in the USA, I started my own antique car business, and I've owned, bought and sold over 1,500 vehicles to date. My interests tends to run towards the rare and unusual, 1930s thru 1970s. Auto Union SP1000 to Tatra V8, Studebaker Golden Hawk to Rolls-Royce Cloud I, 1938 Ford convertible sedan to 1959 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, my tastes are pretty eclectic and wide ranging. My profile photo is me behind the wheel of the 1956 Packard Predictor, at the National Studebaker Museum.

    Keep in mind these modern engine stands are made for short [front to rear] engines, including 4 cylinders and V8 or V6 engines. Even older Chevy/GMC straight 6 engines can be too much weight hanging off the stand’s single upright post. That said, never use one of these to hold a straight eight engine, Pontiac, Packard, Buick, or imports like Daimler. They are simply too long and heavy for this type of stand. They are difficult to move around the floor with such long and heavy engines, and the slightest obstacle on the floor [like a stray nut] can cause the entire thing to tip on their side when one caster stops rolling.
