I have two spare 1.6's that I wish to rebuild work on.

  1. Is it necessary to get an engine stand to rebuild them?
  2. If so what should I look for, brand name or just weight capacity?
  3. How much does a 1.6 deisel engine weigh anyway?
  4. What are some good sources online for  shop tools?
  5. How about VW-specific tools (like timing and compression tools)?
