    Any ideas. Complete motor from car to oil pan weight? I am going to buy a 1000 lb engine stand and wanted to make sure thats enough.

    Stomp,
    Let's just say that a 1000 lb stand will easily support a 350 and my fat mother-in-law sitting on it! Hell she could get up on it like it were a pommel horse and do a full routine on it, dismount, score a perfect 10 and it'll still be fine. Just don't tip it over. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    My crate 350 without intake manifold, headers, and carb (long block) had a shipping weight of 450#. I used a 1000# stand for mine without issue. I also have a complete 305 sitting on the same stand still full of fluids with everything except the carb and no issues.

    A basic long block is 450 lbs. The shipping wt. is painted on the crate they come in.

    I've got a 454 sitting on mine. It's complete from carb to oil pan. it's been on there almost a year w/out any issues. A 454 is significantly heavier than a tree-fity! But yeah, don't tip it over!
