"Attached are some photos and info on my modified engine carrier.
I used 19 mm x 190 mm dressed pine board with (4) 40 mm dia 60 kg rated stem castors. I needed to also notch out the carrier on the crankshaft line to allow for the tapered protrusion on the rear of the sump on my 1800 engine (19mm board would not fit between the back plate and sump). Having castors on the carrier makes it a one man job to move around the garage".
For design dimensions see the prior article. This one is screwed together without hinges, so it doesn't fold up but it should be more sturdy for pushing it around on the shop floor.
