7.3 liter diesel jer 3-14-05  
What is the weight on a 7.3 liter
non turbo diesel engine
Re: 7.3 liter diesel Phil Feinstein 3-15-05  
As a rule of thumb, a cast iron block on a V8 weighs 175 pounds, cast iron heads are 25 pounds each and a crank is 25 pounds.

Best guess for a complete engine would be 300 to 350 pounds bone dry and 400 pounds wet.

Hope that helps!

I would assume it weight around 1100-1300lbs.

That assumption would give you a great saftey factor.

Re: 7.3 liter diesel wrench 4-7-05  
The weight of the 6.0 L/Navistar is 1062/pounds dry, & this engine got more alluminum that the 7.3L.
The 444E/7.3L weight 930/ dry.
so 1100/1300 is lot more realistic that 300/400 pounds.
