Engine Mounting

Does anybody on the forum have an engine mounting (probably not the correct word) - i.e. the sort of thing you would use to store an engine off the boat, in a shed etc, they would be prepared to lend me for a month or so? I'm after one for a car type engine.

Cheeky fecker, although I did send him on a very dangerous mission. He was requried to collect one of these from a tool shop in Sarfhampton. His only protection for this misison was the fact we nicked his wallet before he set off so he could only look but not touch (i know bit cruel). Anyway he successfully returned with one of these. Hadn't thought about using it for outboards but it would be easy enough to do and at 500 kgs be strong enough. 30 on collection. Mine is going to be in use for a while but they have plenty of others, and saves messing about with a pallet, some wood and tesco trolley wheels.

Oh I see, still a V8 is a proper engine to work on unlike some of these glorified sewing machine engines you find in cars these days
Is Mr H getting his hands dirty or is he only involved in a supervisory / consultative role

Mr H is my Equipment Manager, its his engine hoist which he manages to lend to the Church mob to lift things like boat engines oh and Nashers kids.

Nice chap, need to buy him a few beers on Monday.

Well, my last Landy V8 did 13 years & 125 k with just oil changes before I sold it, probably just run in then. Not bad for a bit of English Engineering, BTW how long will your Opti last ?
