Is that the vehicle you are swapping the 4bt into, or did you just lay your hydraulic press down horizontally and mount the engine and wheels to it? ;) :D
I have got to hand it to you, I am impressed! I am always over engineering things, but that has to be one of the best examples of over engineering I have seen in a long time.:beer:
Were you in the Army corp of Engineers too.

Would you feel comfortable with a 4BT on them?
In short yes, I have had several diesels all of which are much heavier than a 4bt on them both and no other mishaps. As far as the bent head stock, I made a new one out of 3/8" wall tube and a 3/4" plate of HRS.
I will admit they are not the best made stands and obviously they have some material quality issues. But for an $80 cheap import what can I expect. My suggestion is to hang the engine on the stand and slacken the hoist chain but leave it attached for a period of time to see if it will sag and take up the slack.
