i believe another poster has already posted the numbers which do sound
correct. block alone weighs 60 pounds, entire engine (with fluids?)
weigh 400 pounds.  i have a tech manual somewhere that i have
misplaced, so i don't know exactly 400 what pounds... in any case,
that's quite a bit less than the porker, so i think we have
confirmation.  sorry if i sound evasive, i am swamped at work, so
i can't do the usual digging through my car stuff...
