Today I went out to my storage unit and grabbed an old engine stand for the motor I just pulled from my parted '86. Nice, heavy little stand, but it's missing the "pin" that you use to keep the head from rotating. On my other stands I've put the the "pins" on chains and self-tapped them to the stand so they never get lost. That's besides the point. I went looking on ebay for a replacement "pin", but can't find them. I've gotta be searching for the wrong name. What do you call them?

Measure the hole size and go to the hardware store.  It's not a special pin.

I lost my pin years ago too. I just found a long enough bolt in the correct diameter to drop in there.  Been using it that way for years.
