Re: How much does an Inline six Weigh?

I bought a used complete 235 for my '56 a long time ago. I must have been about 16. Me and my dumb teenaged buddies went over there and picked it up by hand, and somehow stuffed it in the back of a Ford Country Squire station wagon. I remember thinking that thing was crazy heavy. Amazing none of us lost any fingers or toes.

Re: How much does an Inline six Weigh?

The 250 was light enuf to hang from the garage ceiling. That was my fear on the weight. Clsoer to 600 lbs I might have thought twice.

Here's one even dumber: about 20 years ago I picked up a long block 327, twice, by myself. I thought if you were strong enough to do it, do it, wrong! I later found out that was way too much weight for a guy 5'7" and 150 lbs. soaking wet.
