Weight of a 351C

Anyone know how much a 1972 Ford 351C-4V weighs? I need to purchase an
engine stand and I want to make sure it's strong enough.

Thanks.

According to Hot Rod Magazine's Ford High Performance publication (1985),
The Ford 429/460 weighs in at 720 lbs and the 351M/400 weighs in at 575 lbs.

Re: Weight of a 351C

I would get a stand that can support at least 500-550 lbs.

Yet another $.02 worth from a proud owner of a 1970 Mach 1 351C @

Re: Weight of a 351C

I'll recommend buying the heaviest stand you can afford... While your
current goal is to keep a 351 off the ground, the future may come back to
haunt you.

rec.woodworking has one battle cry... "buy the best and only cry once....".
Works for me.

I agree, and do yourself a fav and buy a 4 wheeled engine stand. The 3
wheelers are far too frickin tippy.

I have a Harbor Freight unit. Have to support the crank snout or the nose of
the engine droops. This is with an iron head 460 and they are heavy. Believe
they are rated at 1500 pounds but that would be a stretch. Cost me about $50
and would be fine for a 302.
