Looks good Bill. Glad to see you're getting ready for my arrival.

I was actually looking at the 1500 lb foldable unit that is on special for $79., regular $99.

This 750 is actually built better than their 1000lb unit. This one is overkill for a 3800. They had a SBC on this very model at NAPA for display.

Built better and rated lower? Interesting. I know what you mean though. Two wheels in the front for stability etc.

The difference is the 1000lb rated ****-ant POS they were selling was made in China by a chinese (imagine that) company that you can't sue when the engine breaks off it and lands on your foot.

All the braces and tubing on this unit are thicker and stronger. Wider spacing in wheels, too. These wheels are also STEEL, where the other unit were hard plastic.

They had a SBC on it at NAPA and the thing barely moved when you tried to make it wobble.

looks like a good stand. I like the rear wheel setup on it. Much betterthan my Harbor Freight 1000 pound one.

I currently have three engine stands. The harbor freight one, which had a fully dressed buick 350 on it. was a little wobbly, but held it fine.

The other is a red 1250 pound one. Unsure of the manufacturer, but it'* holding my fully dressed 95 L67 and has been since I bought it over a year ago. Even made the move.

The last one is my father'* old one. Brand unknown. He got it for an old 396 he had back in the day, so it has a higher rating, although the holes are not big enough for the L67 bolts, so it is just sitting in the garage.

Like bill said, you need to look at the quality of the one when you buy it, not just the rating. If I didn't get the harbor freight one basically new for cheap, I wouldn't have bought it. It would probably be fine with a L67 short block and maybe a long block, but anything larger/heavier and that you'll be wrenching on, it probably isn't the best for.

freshened huh sounds like me maybe a 068 cam too and some domed pistons and a couple other CR raising goodies.
Nope. Leaky rear main seal and the last time I pulled it was in 1991.
Already has a Performer Cam in it but ya it has the original pistons that should be replaced.......after an overbore.
Love to pop some aluminum heads and a roller cam in it.

I just can't stand that the SSEi is faster than my Bird.
