Re: weight of 351c block?

it would be around the 100 kg mark....
it would take 2 strong fellas to lift it...

err...short motor...add another 50 kg at least.....
you might need an engine crane...

Yes it will be ok in your boot. Lifting it in is another matter, as the poster above said, you'll need to have eaten your weatbix that morning.
It is do-able though, my brother and myself have done it.

4 guys lifted and slid my 351 complete plus fmx box plus extractors into the back of a HR wagon a few years ago.

Quite a funny sight to see, nearly did will stands and put a good use for a Holden! LOL

It was the heaviest thing I'd ever lifted.
