John, thats the one I was talking about.
 I believe someone even with limited skills at reading a tape measure could build a stand like that with the measurements and a picture.


I can't get anymore out of it, I've got both sticks hot clear up to the knobs allready.

Beautiful welds. The fab pictures give me some ideas for a trailer project I have going.

Unless you have the capacity to build to exact tolerances, it's impossible to make a stand from plans or measurements.

Instead, you want to build out from the engine itself.

Picked up this 1 ton a few years back for a song.  It had some front end damage, but not severe.  The bumper was toast, and not suitable for the way I operate a truck.  I need to be able to pull it out of the mud, and also utilize a tow bar if needed.



Dropped the bumper.



Then fabricated the new brackets, and attached them to the frame.  Note that the front of the brackets are unfinished.  This is to allow for fitup later in the process.  This is "building out" , ie. working from a known position (the frame of the truck)



The partially finished bumper was then tacked to the pre-mounted brackets.



Then removed, and the other stuff was attached off the truck on the table.  Careful attention to welding sequence is needed to insure that heat distortion doesn't affect the final fit.







Then it's all put back on the truck, and it fits perfectly.  The truck has front end damage on the left front quarter which messed up the left fender and grille mounts.  You can see the body sets a bit low on the frame on the drivers side.  If I had measured anywhere, or built anywhere other than from the frame, the bumper wouldn't have fit properly.



I suggest the SMAW(stick) process for this kind of work, it's more reliable.  You don't have to worry about adequate penetration as you might using either MIG or Flux Core, both of which require adequate experience to set the welding parameters correctly.  Personally, I prefer stick on anything but thinner materials, and used the process in this instance.

So..........In short, start from your existing mounting holes/brackets on the engine, then build out from there.  It shouldn't be a big deal

Looks like a reel mower for a golf course. 

I have seen a stand that used an old trunion mount across the front for small cams but could be swapped for the cradle for big cams.  Seems like as long as you get the materials right for the load it wouldn't be all that hard to make one.  Some appropriate castors could also be an option.  I have an old freight cart I have been using.  I am keeping it.  The 270 is sitting on it now.
