Default torque plate for redblock around Houston

Anyone have a torque plate I could rent? I really dont want to buy one for one build. I have read people use the ford version of the 2.3l but I'd rather use the correct torque plate. I picked up yoshi rods and pistons I want to put in after I get my 6 speed swap buttoned up.

Also before I get scolded for not searching I did. I also asked deeworks about it and they don't rent I'd have to buy.

Would something for a Ford 2.3 Lima engine work as well?

Yes John, it will.

Not sure why the concern over using the Ford plate vs. a 'correct' Volvo plate. The bore spacing, bore diameter, and bolt spacing is the same between the two. I laid a head gasket over the Ford one and it was spot on, even per my machinist's knowing eyes.
