How much does a V8 weigh?


Recommended Posts

As per title.

How much does a fully dressed 3.9 V8 weigh?

Need to buy an engine hoist with plenty of height but that limits its lifting capacity. Capacity costs money so don't want to buy bigger than I need too.



I lifted a 7.2 litre cast iron bloked Crysler V8 with my 1 tonne engine hoist but only just. I lifted a 2.5 diesel landy engine with clutch etc with ease with it at full stretch. I recon a V8 ally blocked engine is lighter than both of those so 1 tonne would do easy.
