ENGINE WEIGHTS

The weight of the Ford engines has been published in various books and web sites. Weights vary depending in whether all engine accessories such as alternator and smog are included, and whether the engines are wet and ready to operate (oil, fuel and water incl) or dry.

Here are some indicative weights, plus a couple of websites with more data
