How far do you plan to carry it? I imagine it wouldnt be too hard to lift it a short distance, but to actually carry it?
Watch your back.....

It took two of us to carry my 5.0L around without the heads, so I would think a 4cyl would be fine as long as you could get a good grip.

me and my dad ripped apart an old datsun 4cyl, we used my punchin bag frame and a rope to get it outta the car and onto some trussels. But as soon as i got all the sand and the head off it it wasn't that hard to carry around, best to get another person to help you though!
