What is the difference in weight on these motors. Also if you put a 700R4 behind the 4.3, the stock toy 5 speed behind the 22RE, and a Mustang Auto behind the 5.0 ( i think it is a c4?)

I dunno but I was suprised on how light the 5.0 really is or atleast on how little my soft springs went down with it..

I seem to recall adding that info to the tech section but I'll have to go check again..

Well My buddy and I lifted a small block Chevy motor before, Yes we both hurt our backs, but we lifted it a few inches at least. Anyway, I would think they would be comparable here, but I could be wrong again.

2 guys can lift and manuever a 5.0,(well 2 strong guys can, maybe not 2 guys used to Toyota parts <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">).
The 5.0 is somewhere around 400 lbs. I can look up the stats when I get home.

I lifted my 22re Long block by myself and I am not that strong also I watched a buddy lift one out of his bed by bearhugging it and throw it into a core bin at pnpull. They are definitly a lot lighter than any V8

According to the chart a volkswagen is 200 and most of the "L-4's" were around 300-350, I'd say a 22r or 22re is around 250-275 depending on what was on it. Maby 200 w/out the head.

I seem to recall 320lbs being weight with accessories and 450 or 460 the 302. I've weighted both before and have the notes at home if someone really needs the specs. The Dodge D-50's are surprisingly light. Somehow I was able to move one into the back of a truck by rolling it up a motorcycle ramp by myself and I'm not a weight lifter! I think I recall hurting my back a bit also...

This thread was particularly interesting.

Good link there Gordon. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Doesn't anyone know the weight of a 22R?
And how about a Suzuki 1.3L?

As to picking up engines, 400+ lbs is a lot for two guys to pick up. I used to be a junk man and I worked with a friend who is very strong. We picked up some heavy stuff, but you are limited by how high you can pick it up. I would not advise trying to lift a V8 into the back of a truck with only two people. It's just not worth hurting your back when you could get a couple more guys to help out. <IMG SRC="smilies/cool.gif" border="0">
