How much does a 1256 engine and box weigh

Postby 78dtv » 26 Feb 2008, 09:53

Trying to do some calculations regarding an engine swap. Does anybody know what a 1256 engine and / or box weighs?

I had a complete engine shipped on a pallet, IIRC, it was 95kg.

Cheers Gordon, sounds around about my quesstimate.

Any idea on the gearbox weights, trying to work out what the weight difference would be with a Crossflow engine and a Ford Type 9 Box.

I've a couple of 1256 engines and gearboxes in the garage - if I remember this weekend I'll try to dig them out and put them on the bathroom scales.
Aslo got a T9 with alloy XE bellhousing and centre mount hydraulic clutch, if that's any help.
No promises, though, as work is trying to get me to work the weekend.

Thanks for the help Gordo, I have some type9's so can weight one of those no problem.

Weight of the 1256 box would be nice if you get a chance.
