I am getting ready try my hand at building a couple of motors and wanted to know if I need to buy the vw specific engine stand or will a standard engine stand do the trick? If either one will work is there any benefit to either? There is a good deal on thesamba right now but I will have to pick it up in Mesa. I have a friend that will do that I think. But if a regular stand is the ticket I can find one local, cheap and easy I am sure.

You can use any engine stand, but a VW stand makes like a little easier.

Here is one. phoenix.craigslist.org...52342.html

Buy one that can turn the engine upside down. So you can reach everything always with ease.

I had toi drill holes and insert pins in the round part that allows the stand to rotate. I couldnt get the bolt tight enough to hold the engine without spinning.

Other than that these stands are great.
