Picked up a couple of engine cradles at the flea market today, Chinese made, apparently designed for a V8.
Anyone rigged mounting brackets for storing a straight 6 on one of these? Looks like the rear holes come close to lining up with the BH holes in the back of the block. It's the front 45 degree support plates that have me stymied.
Would hanging chains from these for the front of the motor to rest on do the job, d'ya think? My best idea for a bracket so far is a drilled plate that bolts to the block, welded to a short length of square tube, welded at a 45 degree angle at the other end to a drilled plate that mates with the mount plate on the cradle.
Was also eyeing some 3/4" 45* ell black iron pipe fittings leftover from a gas piping job. Is there a simple way to join these to steel plate with a MIG?
Also wondering what purpose the row of bolts on the top of the crossbar serve.
