Rated 3 out of 5 by Oldschoolrodes24 from Meh I bought 2 of these for customer engines. The first went together flawlessly. Seemed a little wobbly but once installed on the block its sturdy as a rock. No complaints there. Customers motor made the 150 mile trip home with no issues. The second the customer stopped me at a short block and just took his motor so I said sweet I get a cradle for myself. Went to put it together and the lower bolt holes (which are drilled with nuts welded behind) were off center. I had to massage both openings and one bolt ended up snapping in the process of tightening it down. But again once bolted to the block it seems just fine. I am travelling 1200 miles with this block so we'll see how it does but I am confident.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 78chevy from Good storage for extra motor I received this the other day and immediately went to assemble it. I ran into the the same problems as others. The nuts for the front cross member were not lined up and when I attempted to tighten the first one the nut came loose and I had to weld it back in. Once I had that done it was easy to assemble and install on my motor. Even though I had to fix the nuts for assembly it is still worth the money and easier than building my own. It is easy to move my motor where I need. I will probably buy more. Hopefully Jegs reads these and talks with the manufacturer to improve quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mechanicalman from Pleased I had a couple engines I needed to be able to store and move with ease, this product allowed me to do that at a reasonable price. I do wish, however, that the wheels not be bolted to the axles when shipped as they have to come apart to assemble the frame. I was unable to read the last two questions on this review so I was forced to give them both 3's, if able to read maybe I could have rated that higher. I will not be forced to watch a video just to get those questions. I'm getting turned off by this now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JoeM55 from Engine cradle - Hard to use I bought this a few weeks ago and was a little disappointed. This was the 1st product I received from Jegs that was not a quality product. The cradle was for a Small Block Chevy, but you have to pull the back portion while someone holds the engine to get it to fit on the bellhousing side. It is too far apart to fit just right. As you bolt on 1 side, it is about 2 inches wider than the back of the engine. So you have to pull it inward to bolt on the opposite side. Takes 2 people or a come-a-long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 67 Drop Top 455 from Compact & strong. I was worried it would be kind of flimsy, but it was quality built, quality finished and went together very easy. Fit just like it should and performs flawlessly. One of the best purchases I've made for ease of use and storage needs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Joshb187 from Holds an engine. After you pry, bend, push, and pull to get this thing lined up and assembled be prepared to loosen every fastener again to get it bolted up to an engine. Then after that don't expect all 4 casters to touch the ground at the same time. It does hold my engine. It is easier to move it around rather than picking the engine up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greeninwood from These are perfect. I was worried they would not roll on unsmooth concrete but they do without any problem. I did have to spring the rear sides inward to get the bolts attached but did so without any modification. Would definitely purchase another. Great product and excellent price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BR549 from Great! At $34.00 and free shipping, this thing is a bargain for it's intended use. All but one hole lined up easily, it's more than adequate to support my 327 and it rolls like a dream when loaded. It's everything I needed it for.
