I had a spare push mower deck laying around and decided to use it as a engine stand to make moving the engine around easier. The engine is a 18hp twin Briggs and Stratton. Originally I was going sell this engine but the guy that was going to buy it never showed up so this may turn into a reality now when I have some time. The picture is one that I took of the engine just setting on the deck.

That briggs is pretty tall on there. I'd be scared it would fall over. If you had an old GT mower deck and some wheels you could put the engine on something wider.
