    Any of you guys have an idea what a ballpark weight is fo your T buckets using a small block. I'm doing some numbers on my inline engine and need something close. Thanks everyone.

    1870 pounds here. Looks like weights are all over the place. I guess you could nail down an average.

    Yeah! They are a little spread out on weight but that's a big help. Thanks for helping me I wrote all of them down in my notebook.

    A blower weighs that much? Wow, I figured maybe 30-35 lbs. max.

    Everytime I grab one and snatch it up to plop it onto the lower gasket.....it keep saying to myself....."yep.....those rotors are hollow....they're hollow........."
    8-71........I don't even try anymore..........in my old delapidated state.....about all I can handle comfortably is a 4-71, ( pretty heavy).....now the magnachargers and little 144's....not bad at all....
