MG MGA - Weight of Bare Block?
|Does anyone know the approx weight of a bare block? I need to know for shipping purposes.|
Hi there, get the bathroom scale & weigh yourself. Pick up the block & weigh yourself again,
Deduct your first weight and you have the answer.
Sorry, just having a little fun.
|Listed at 359lbs (162.84kg) dry weight in the MGA Workshop Manual.|
|That's not the bare block. 359 has to be the whole engine assembled, maybe including the flywheel and clutch. I carry the bare block inverted in a wood pop crate and set it in the back of my hatch back single handed, so maybe less than 100 pounds?|
|Hey Rod, I would use your bathroom scale idea but the poor little thing would not be able to hold that kind of weight!|
All kidding aside, I would weigh it but the shipping is for pickup. I don't have a bare block to weigh.
|I'm pushing/lifting a bare block around right now during a rebuild. I'd say around 125-150 lbs.|
