 In a word, yes. I've suspended many a Corvair engine this way. Since this isn't a dynamic load (you're not going to run this engine on the stand, right?), this is a no brainer. Those bell housings are stronger than that.

Subject: <VV> Corvair engine on Harbor Freight engine stand ?

Hi guys,

Is the Corvair engine safe to "hang" on an engine stand?

I bought the Harbor Freight engine stand
(www.harborfreight.com/750-lb-capacity-engine-stand-32915.html) and just
wondering if the aluminum bell housing will support the engine hanging off

It was quite a trick getting it up high enough to mount it, too, but it
beats working on the driveway!

Back to work on my lifelong 1967 Monza project!

No new pix yet, but here's what I have so far - you might say I have a
"reverse Midas" touch with this car, so who knows what the future holds?

I'll keep you posted so you can egg me on ;>}~!
