Good brand for engine stand for a fully loaded 351C?
I'm getting crazy thoughts that I need to pull the engine from my 72 Ranchero and seal it up, as it leaks pretty bad and the car is down anyways needing the front suspension reinstalled(new soft parts) and the floor pans need replaced (waiting for money to buy a mig welder and gas, going to be using 65-70 full length Mustang pans, not a perfect match but they do work). I am also waiting a bit on the heat here to finally go away. I am too old to do this stuff in the summer here unless it is an emergency anymore. I got the front suspension off the car in April I think it was, but the heat got to me by the time I got all the parts here.
I have a hoist already but no stand. If I didn't have the hoist I wouldn't be thinking crazy thoughts like this.
Of course budget is always an issue, and the prices have skyrocketed on this stuff in the 8 or more years since I really bought anything like this new. Not at all opposed to used, but HF seems to be the most popular one for sale there. I can deal with an HF one if it will safely hold the engine.
RIP Mallory, Abby, and Sadie. And now Casey. :-( We miss you girls.

On maybe permanent hold.
72 Ranchero GT w/351Cleveland & automatic. Although this wasn't supposed to be a project car it seems that it has become one. Stupid rusted out California floor pans.
