My guess would be that you are using it as a jig, to see if an engine would fit in some place that might be confined or where clearance is tight.

That's a muffler/pipe jig...... The pipes are notorious for cracking at the muffler weld due to vibration.....

Bingo....Muffler Jig....
If you weld up a broken or cracked muffler pipe...without securing it in the proper position...
There's a pretty good chance it won't fit when it cools off...
I welded up a few broken mufflers one afternoon only to find that none of them would fit without using a hammer..
Necessity is the mother of invention...I bolted together some junk engine parts...and made me a jig..
Now...they fit everytime....
