Hey Bruce, It weighs about 450lbs. It helps weight-wise if the alternator,
motor mount, skid plate, cross members and all oils are drained out.
However it's a bit easier to manhandle if the tranny crossmember is left
attached. If possible remove the clutch rod as it will always catch on
something you don't want it near or snagging on.
