That stand looks big enough to mount the engine while it is still
in the car :slight_smile:

Here is my attempt at a stand. I wanted something that could take
a range of engines as well as act as a test-bed at the end of the
process:

Bravo, Neville; at last the new machine is shown to the
public and started for their benefit. What a wonderful
achievement and completion of a dream and quest. I am
looking forward to seeing the machine in action as time goes
on. Thank you for giving credit where credit is due, you
have given us a great present and I hope you will have
customers for additional replicas of such a great machine.
Best, JW–
