Am bringing my old RB26DETT home over the weekend and will need to lift it in and out of the van. Can anyone tell me what the engine weighs? Preferably fully dressed (as that's how it'll be) so I can make sure my engine crane isn't gonna fold in half like a wet kitchen towel when I try to lift it... :p

Cheers :D

Hi Jim,

Think it is around 1600 - 1700kg.

Not 100% but that seems to ring a bell. Bloody heavy anyway!

Jim,

If it's any help....my engine crane is one of the cheaper Clarke ones. That lifted it easily with no strain whatsoever.

I dont think you'll have a problem, as long as you dont swing it around too much.

Regards

Sweet :) I too have one of the cheaper Clarke engine cranes. I think it's rated to about 6-700kg with the head not extended. If a bare engine weighs circa 180kg then a fully dressed one (i.e. everything from the intake manifold right through to the turbos) shouldn't be anywhere near 600kg...

Cheers guys :D
