A 3 rib bus bell housing will let you attach a starter. Gravity feed gas tank and a battery should let you run it on the floor.

You mean that bell housing from
Bus can fit to our Bug? And the engine can sit on the floor? Don't really need stand?

You can cut the bell housing off a t1 trans and build your own.
Or maybe try and borrow one.
Oh, do yourself a favor and put it on a table so you can work upright.
