Isn't this engine stand only for swinging arm models?

I made one of these to the specifications shown in the BSA service sheet referenced above, and it worked fine.  Mostly, it was useful for setting up the lower end on the work bench (i.e. crank end play).  Once the cases are together, most of the engine assembly is done in the frame since the engine quickly becomes very heavy once cylinders are added.

By the time you've made your stand, you could strip and reassemble your engine on the bench? I've never bothered.

While an engine stand might be nice, I just have a pair of engine plates bolted to a piece of wood nailed to a a flat piece of wood. Took a few minutes to make and owes me nothing
