Engine stand

I'm pulled my first engine (22re) and I can't figure out how to get it on the engine stand, it's a harbor frieght 1000 pound stand. I can get the bottom 2 bolts to line up but not the top 2.

Not having a clue how the Harbor freight one looks you might need to build your own adapter to bolt to the block then slide into the engine stand

I have needed to do that a few times over the years .

Most often you get what you pay for

On the top two, I had to sit my adjustment to the half way point. Maybe the picture will help. I went to Lowes and got me 4 bolts just for my engine stands to hold the motor and that is all I use them for. I have 2 HF stands with motors on them.

I'm pretty sure that's the same stand I used with my 3.4 swap. You'll need to rotate the "mount plate" and arms, move the arms to different slots until you can align the arms to 4 of the transmission mount holes.

I know its a different application, but here's how mine looked with a 3.4 (it's not totally clear, but it's the best I have):

I didn't know how long of a bolt I needed so I grabbed a bunch of hardened 1/4" thick washers to act as spacers.

Just got to get creative.
The HFT 750-lb stand uses M12x1.25 75mm, some use 100mm.
