It should be noted that the scale is plus or minus 10 pounds, but I think you guys get the idea.

Lighter than the official numbers...

It's considered a light weight because that's exactly what it is. Compared to the competitive engines in the same class of the era; cummins 6bt and ford/ih p/s 7.3 comming in at well over 1k. Not 100% sure about the ford/ih weight, but for sure the 6b and the ih444 (not to be confused with the 7.3ps). Even those are lightweight really, in the grand scheme of diesels.

I'm not too sure how I feel about that. The heavier the meatier.

Curious about the block number. By the looks of it I'm assuming gm506?

It would be interesting to weigh the different blocks alone....

Either way... awesome sticky. Thanks injectorsarus. Some clarity on weight... :thumb:
