Complete engine, 535 to 575.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

Ya want me to put it on the scale again? How would it affect your life it if weighed 150#? Are you talking about an early 283 block with thick walls or a 400 block with siamese walls? 2-bolt mains or 4-bolt mains, those bolts also weigh something. Standard bore, undecked or a .060" overbore with the deck cut to 9.00"? How much does 15 cubic inches of iron weigh?

Smile Re: small block Chevy weight?

He, He!!

When I brought my car and ALL my crap home a while a go, I barrow'd my S-i-L's Ranger II and didn't remember the dam tailgate latch was broke !!

So I just puffed up, bent down, grabbed my bare 283 block and YANKED it up AND over the darn near heart/chest high top of the tailgate and went on about my business and liked ta coughed!!

Heck, back when I was on the RR as a 20 y/o punk kid, a 200 pound spike keg was a piece a cake!! What w/ me weighing 135 pounds or so!!

I used to pack RR ties up outta the bottoms of the fills on my shoulders!!

pdq67, wouldn't be nice to turn the clock back to those youthful days, if I could I sure would. However, at 61 I still feel pretty good. I'm not trying to steal the thread.

Welfare Department they wouldn't give him no clothes
He asked poor Howard where can I go
Howard said there's only one place I know
Sam said tell me quick man I got to run
Ol' Howard just pointed with his gun
And said that way down on Highway 61.

So - "BARE" - as in no bearings, caps or other bolt-on parts ...
That's about right for a pre-late-70's block

I'll let Paul know

1968 Convertible
Some trucks
Other V8 things - some of which float
Other V6 things - none of which float
Oh yeah, and 1 "Straight-Six" ...

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!

Re: small block Chevy weight?

Correction, the main caps and bolts were on the block, nothing else.
