Weights & Measures

Just an odd collection of Type 4 figures to help you calculate fair shipping costs when buying used parts from strangers...

All weights +/- 0.5 lbs (bathroom scale accurate) unless precise ounces are given.

Long block:

A Type 4 long block weighs approx. 142 lbs.


Fully dressed Type 4 weighs 309 lbs.

How does a long block compare to a Type 4 fully dressed? The long block weights about 167 lbs less. This makes quite a difference when you are moving the engine around from one place to another, trying to lift it onto an engine stand or calculate shipping costs.
