You are going to laugh, but, either on this forum or maybe I read this but some guy made brackets to bolt the engine to the rear wheel and used it as a rotating engine stand. Just jack up that side to rotate and use the brake to hold it in the desired position. I myself have an engine stand so can't say much, but I'd try this before doing one on the floor. chris

It can certainly be done on a table, but a stand does make things a lot easier.

Do you have a harbor frieght anywhere near you? They're great for stuff like that. You can get one for under $50.

If you only need it once, you can easily sell it in a day or two on craigslist for $30/40 when you're done.

Another possibility, might help, might not. On the last one I did without a stand I put the crank in & flywheel on with it upside down. Then stood it on end with blocking & a safety chain from a water pump bolt to rafter. Put the starter on next. Easy to push pistons in & hook up rods using lots of assembly lube. Spin it a few times with starter to make sure everything is right, then add another piston etc. Easy to put on oil pan with it standing on end too.

Tables work fine....Dad just laid some boards on top of the Allis WC, WD, frame and used that. I bought a HM stand at auction for $65. Was a V wheeled base, vertical pipe, horizontal pipe with a smaller one inside. End of inside pipe had a disk about 10 inches dia, with 4 slotted weldments equally spaced. Weldments were about half, 5/8 steel....U shape. Works fine for a 4 cyl AC motor. Double pipes have aligning holes, so I can rotate the block and pin in various positions. Yeah, I should post a pic! My project is to take a car flywheel, weld it to the inner pipe, add a crank and starter gear to rotate it that way.

I used a heavy duty table made from angle iron. It had wooden planks on top for the engine to sit on. I rebuilt a Chevy 283 V8 engine after the engine was dipped and the cylinders bored .030" oversize. I had the shop to install the cam bearings. Once I had the crankshaft installed I set the engine upright using 2 X 4's
so the crankshaft cleared the table top by placing them under the engine block. I then installed the new pistons and rod bearings. I borrowed a cherrypicker to move the engine. An engine stand would've made it easier. Hal
