How mcuh does my 4.0L weigh?

Hey I saw this question on PM's board and thought ya'll could shed some more light on this. Plus it'd help with some future products.

How much does a 4.0L weigh? Compared to 4.3 Vortec? 5.0? 5.7? From what I understand, that 4.0 is hefty.

figure that steel weighs about 500 lbs per cubic foot, so i'd guess your motor would be 750 to 1000 lbs.

Re: weight

My 258 head weighs something under 100#. The short block couldn't weigh much more than 200#. Two of us moved it around quite a bit by hand when I was rebuilding.
