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.

Well Georgia Sam he had a bloody nose
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

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