    Made one out of spare 2x4's and 5 HF dolly wheels. Works great. I can try to get a better pic of it for you if u want.

    I did the same thing with wheel dollies under a piece of 1 1/8 plywood tapered the cut to fit inside my engine hoist wheel frame. Secured the dollies to the plywood with 1x3 wood screwed into it. Motor tranny and headers installed. All stuff I had in the shop.took old motor and k out and put the new in by myself. Take your time and it's no problem.

    I just used the el-cheapo harbor freight furniture dolly for 8 bucks. It held my 440/727...

    Thanks guys, i appreciate the low bucks approach, but i was hoping to see one made from square tubing that i could possibly start the engine on. If i find one, or build one, i'll post a pic of it. Thanks again,
    Tom
