Ref the engine stand mounting, I prefer this side mounting type so you still have access to the rear seal and flywheel area.

Thanks Hasbeen, just the sort of info I need. I wouldn't have thought of checking those. Many thanks.

Cheers Russ. I could make something like that if I had some of that lovely box section laying around. However for the benefit of others looking to do what I'm trying to do and searching this thread in the future, I found some bolts at https://www.margnor.co.uk/166f031x350.html

That side-mounted arrangement does look fab though. Thanks for sharing!

Cheers
