How to put 6A12 on engine stand?

Post by Rob Furniss » Mon Sep 26, 2016 12:57 pm

We've got the engine out (Rowans car), still on the engine hoist at the moment and we have an engine stand (Supercheap) that we want to put the engine on.
Could someone who's done this before or just happens to know let me know how to do this, what bolts to what etc?
Anything have to come off the engine first before we do this?

Cheers,
Rob

Yeah I've got one bolted to a stand at home. All gearbox bolts.

We got it on the stand at the weekend, time to strip it.
