    I think it's around the weight of a BBC. Around 7-750lbs?

    And that is just in long block form, no accessories... I used a 3 leg stand probably rated for 750 #'s to part out a 6.2L recently. It held it and I made sure to keep my toes clear at all times though!

    total is around 1,000lbs. Be very careful! Maybe keep an old tire underneath it at all times?

    I think you have a much greater chance of it breaking while you are working on it than overnight failure.:eek1:

    Well it's closer to 800 total, still I don't put any BBC or diesel on a stand less than 2000lbs rated.
    I use the 1000 lbs rated stands for my SBC engines, and I haven't even considered owning anything smaller. Even for my V6 and flat 6 corvair engines.

    I believe that is a GM Tech Manual. eBay is an easy place to find them;)

    Yep, it's an O-fficial GM 6.2 tech manual. It was an eBay find, and it rocks. Well worth the price (even though the seller screwed me on shipping...:mad: ) if you're serious about the 6.2.
