The best thing about the side mount adapt. is that the weight is close to the column and not extending out with the included leverage. With the high cost of Flywheel housings, I would rather not mount to it as in the image on post 40. My opinion, no question it can be done.

Yes , the Harbor Freight engine stand will bolt up to the flywheel housing bolt holes at the rear of the engine block .

Anyone know the angle of the exhaust ports if I wanted to make a side mount engine stand adapter?
I don’t have the engine out yet and the adapters I see on the web look like about 45deg.

Is it that simple?
8BA flathead

I would guess that on an 8BA flathead that they're at 45į to the centreline of the block.

On a Model A the engine stand adapter is usually on the opposite side from the exhaust ports.

If I am reading your question correctly, the exhaust ports are parallel with the deck and the centerline of the crankshaft. The angle of the exhaust ports are because of the engine's inclination as it is mounted in the frame. If I am also understanding your idea, I would think that mounting on the port side would be a huge detriment when you were adjusting valves. Am I missing something?
