I have a 350 and a 327.

A small block Chevrolet with a cast iron intake is around 575 lbs., they don't list bare blocks.

You can see all engine weights here....kind of a fun chart to look at also.

I'll play. Bare I'm thinking closer to 180 pounds. Someone has to have one laying around to weigh.

I have a bare 350 block on a stand in the garage. Probably around 250 pounds.

Me and a friend lifted a 325 Aluminum Gen IV shortblock (crank/pistons/rods installed) by hand to a truck bed. The entire thing couldn't have been more than 180 pounds.
