engine cradle for 200Tdi?

by any chance has anyone made one out of 2x4s or anything...wondering if someone has already got the measurements and scheme...I want to temporarily seat it so I can clean it up and change the timing belt...

George,
I built one out of 4x4's but I just got rid of it last week with the 2.5TD that I replaced with the 200TDI. The guy is a friend so I can probably still get the measurements. It was pretty simple though, just lined up 2 4x4 along the long dimension of the edge of the oil pan and then placed the crrossmembers underneath those where they cleared the ends of the pan. IIRC I had to notch the one side where the drain plug was. I put casters on it so I could move it around the garage. It was really stable and worked well.
