    Just the block, no pistons or anything.

    A followup: A metric BUTTLOAD. More than one average guy, or at least one average me, can heft... so I drug it over to the tailgate on the motor stand, horked one end up into the truck, then shoved, being careful not to remove fingers, until it was off the stand.

    Next time, I want a hobby with small parts.

    No f'in way, really? Maybe they're just stupid bulky, plus I had it horizontal and on the stand. ::shrug::

    YOU get to get the damn thing out of the truck when I bring down to you then, he-man :haha:

    Well, i guess i was wrong. The block just feels that light to me :D but after researching it a bit i found that a 9.8" deck block weighs in at 258 lbs. give or take a couple lbs.
