Please tell me the stock studs can support the engine on a stand. I have the Harbor Freight 750 lbs. universal stand and am nervous about the Alfa bolts snapping off
If it's any consolation, the studs for the mounts are bigger diameter/stronger than the wimpy ones used on the back of the block to tie the bellhousing on with. That and coming in from the side reduces the leverage against the mount point. (about a foot or more less hanging out in the breeze deadweight than what the more conventional 'back of the block' setups produce)

Besides, all the good books show it being done that way :D

I don't think I'd be trying to hang both engine and trans off the mount studs though. That's best left to floor dollies.
