Default weight of 318 engine?

Hey all,

I need to get an engine hoist for installing an outboard motor and would like to get one strong enough to handle the van's engine if need be. How much does a 1989 318 w/ TBI weigh approximately?

Actually the 318 is the short block v8 the long is the 360.

The engine is a LA. Better would be to find what the shipping weight would be for a crate and add a couple hundred pounds leeway (yes I know that is a bit extra). you may look on allpar.com as they have a good section on the engines.
Current: 1985 Ramcharger SE Royal / 318 / 2bbl / A727 / 148K

A long block is a complete engine, while a short block is one you get without the heads, intake, oil pan, and stuff like that. It has nothing to do with engine cubes.
