  • Block weight

    I need to know how much a block weighs, and my scale is broke, and all my motors are either assembled or if bare, at the machine shop.

      Ive never actually weighed it but just by picking it up and putting it in my trunk I would guess 80-100lbs.

      Sorry, never had a need to get an exact weight.

        I should have weighed my old block just to know. I would guess at least 75lbs but I suppose it could be more. Hopefully someone actually has one that can be weighed easily.
        Just stand back and throw money.
        Performance costs money.
        Reliable performance costs more.

          I've picked up a DE block (seems like it should be the same),
          and it felt like it should have weighed well over 100lbs.
          I can curl 75 with one arm, and it felt like I would have had a hard time
          with both.
          Or maybe it was just the awkwardness :?

            like I said, the diff without fluid is 80lbs.... the engine block is almost triple the size.... I wouldnt be surprised if it was 300 with heads and intake

              I have a block with crank on an engine stand at home... I don't really want to pull the crank out of it to weigh it, but I have another crank I could weigh and subtract it.

              Now I just need to find a scale.

                Well my complete W Series with heads weighed something like 272 lbs. The heads probably weigh ~40 lbs or so. Just mentally breaking it down I would think the block would have to weigh near 100 lbs. atleast.
