  1. Hi all of you,,i'm just in the way to ship from New York a 1957 Cadillac engine and transmission...some of you can tell me how much weight all?thanks....
     
  2. i score a webpage ...engine is 720lbs....need transmission weight
     
  3. just guessing. 1000# complete.
     
  4. the '57 had what caddy called a 315 HydraMatic, it was called a jetaway by Olds and you should probably figure 200 lbs minimum maybe as much as 250.

  6. Thanks all hamber friends !
     
  7. That hydromatic should weigh about 25-30 pounds less then the slant pan. One of the reasons they went with that new and improved transmission is weight. But is still going to be a heavy pig. For comparison the Buick Dynaflo of the era tipped the scales @ 180. Funny I had no problem finding dynoaflo weight when I was going to ship to Sweden but I for some reason can't find a real weight on the 315.

    Always better to think heavier then lighter when shipping. LOL

    Have you got shipping covered? Is someone making sure it gets on the boat?
