    A ton ? But quite :)
    For my 1951 263 :
    Block ( empty ) = 90 kg / 200 lbs
    Head ( empty ) = 45 kg / 100 lbs
    Crank = 45 kg / 100 lbs
    Cam = 17 kg / 38 lbs
    8 pistons + 8 rods = 14 kg / 31 lbs

    Don t know for the bell housing , I still need one :)

    I used the same scale I use for myself and my GF , it s quite acurate .
    On an assembled engine , you also have manifolds , alternator , carb , bell housing + trans , valves , rockers , etc .
