    Default Anybody know the dry weight of a cone shovel? Engine only...

    I'm about to ship a motor from Nor Cal to Central/Northern Washington state. I don't got no freakin scale and can't get my hands on one in a timely manner during Corona Virus lockdown. I want to be as accurate as I can be without one, so I'm calling on y'all. My guessing weight for the motor and the crate I'm putting it in is 200 lbs... What do you think? I'm looking for the dry weight of the engine itself. When I say engine I mean fully loaded/functional with flywheels, cranks, pistons, etc. Can't find it in my manual.

    It's a 1973.

    They are about 160 lbs., so you are close, unless your crate is 1/4 steel plate.

    Haha Dragstews, it will be clear how to get the crate apart. And JBinNC, thanks for the weight estimate. The crate is made out of 2x4s and MDF like composite board. Got what they had in the scrap section at Cheapo Depot. I guess I'll call 200 and hope I'm close...

    Shank! Thanks so much. Mine doesn't have a carb on it either so thats perfect. Huge help. Now I feel comfortable estimating the weight to be 170 after the lumber weight... That will save me some $$$ ... Stoked! Thanks again .
