I'm looking at getting a simple engine stand and was wondering how heavy the respective engines were?
I'm guessing the S is heavier (?) and obviously would like a stand that I could use on both engines but, the stands appear to go up in weight tiers, the one I'm looking at it is up to 560 kg which I'm guessing is adequate?

Much more than adequate

This engine is supported by a cheapo stand, when fully built up.About £100 from Ebay.Critical to make sure that its bolted to case well.Appears wobbly but has been fine.

I used exactly the same stand on my engine. No issues.

Good stuff. I’ve got most of the bits together for turbo charging the NA lump but I want to be able to work on it with some degree of comfort and to aid the ease of manufacturing the pipework for the turbo.

I made spacers, cut some 32mm steel tube, to allow the flywheel to be fitted whilst on my stand. I have a cheap and cheerful one and have no issues.

This is the one I think I'm going to go for. I've seen cheaper but they mainly seem to have the 'T' support with only one centre leg and I think I'd prefer two for a bit more stability?
