I've got one of those stands! Maybe time to get it out and use!

Found out during the process of taking the engine apart that the paint on the tray was getting scratched a bit from setting tools and parts on it so I used a piece of black vinyl material I had and made a liner to set on top of the tray.  I sewed a binding on the edges (gave me an excuse to test out my home made swing away binder tool I made for the sewing machine) to keep the edges from fraying and then I set the vinyl in place on the tray - thought I would share a few pictures.

It was a wet day today so I decided to modify the two arms so that the cross bars could be mounted closer to the head.  Removed the arms and welded two pieces of 1/8" x 1-1/2" flat steel to the arm at the head end and drilled two 5/16" holes 1/2" from the end.  Then I cut the two outer rails and added a piece to extend them towards the head end and also added a support piece in the centre to bolt the rail to the arm.  A quick splash of paint and the engine stand was back together - now the cross bars can be mounted much closer to the head and post of the engine stand so the engine is not so close to the front of the stand.  Will have to try it out when I get the Wisconsin back from the machine shop.
