But thereís lots of options. A wood frame would work. I put together a twin post using 8020 extrusions and bolting it up.

After using this twin post though, I doubt Iíll ever use my single post again.
Got Any pics ?

How much did it cost in parts vs buying say 2 1ton engine stands and welding them together ?

Two stands and material to weld them together (including the scrap bin finds at the metal supply) cost me 150.00 and some labor.

I had to reseal the bed plate, so I needed the ability to rotate the engine on the stand. Rotating the engine was super easy using a 4' cheater pipe over the standard turn handle supplied with the stand.

Worked out very well but I would change a few things if I had to make another.

Good Luck
Joe

For me, not much. I use 8020 aluminum extrusions like an adult erector set, reusing the pieces over and over building fixtures, tables, whatever as I need, so Iíd have to sit down and come up with what the cost would be. It would not be cheap.

If I was starting from scratch and wanted to flip the motor around spending the least amount of money, Iíd buy two HF stands (on different days to use the discount). Two 1,000lb stands would work for a rotisserie. As I said earlier, if you take the front and rear covers off while the block is suspended by the crane, you can use the existing parts. If you want to rotate around the motor mounts, you have to buy or fabricate the mount plates or something similar.

I wanted to run this scenario by the forum..

If I plan to do a cab on HG job while replacing the branch tube and back 4 lifters. Does anyone foresee an issue carrying out the one motor mount trick to access the passenger side cylinder head with no transmission or transfer case attached? In all cases that I have seen or read about on the internet in reference to a cab on head gasket job, the transmission and transfer case are still attached when the individual removes the driver side motor mount.

Any thoughts? I don't want to hurt or crack anything.

You already have the tranny out?

if you remove one motor mount -- it would seem to me at that point, would be almost easier to just pull the engine
and do the heads and the other stuff out of the truck

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
