Engine stand that will handel a 7.3

Hey I have ordered 3 2000lbs engine stands to put my 7.3 on and havent found any that will work. The one that the head was big enough to hold the motor folded in half when I tried to lower the fork lift to take the chain off. I NEED AN ENGINE STAND ASAP.

I got one from Harbor Freight, their 2000lb model. It fits ok. It sags a bit so I put a jack stand under the motor mounts to help support the weight. Has been sitting in garage now for 2 weeks and hasn't broken yet. If you need one right away it'll work.
