Mate ur asking for trouble building your own engine cranes... I know someone that built their own ramps, and they collapsed as soon as he drove onto them...

Welds broke.

thats the old tech school project car ramps.... I need a set too much faster than jacks and stands..
You can even score most of the steel for free secondhand and make it for next to nix. Supercheap has lots of cheap hydraulic jacks as that is the biggest cost plus really good castors. Don' use supermarket trolley castors you need steel ones or really good industrial grade ones.

I did a project/assignment for tech graphics where I designed an engine crane and engine stand in one. I have to find the drawing, It should be dimentioned but I dont think I made a cutting list. Might still be of use to you, let me know.

Yeah you can buy a 560 kg engine stand from super cheap for around $160. For $500 you could also buy and engine crane that can carry 1.2T. I have used both and they seem to be to the job.
