What is the weight of a complete engine with cylinders and heads installed?

I know I can lift one, so I guess it;s under 200 lbs.

I would guess 150 lbs, from memory of what it feels like

I'd go along with that estimate. I've lifted one into the frame by myself, I'm only 5'7" and 150 pounds, done the same with complete assembled Shovelhead motors too.

I just read the other day that shipping weight for an aftermarket evo was 170" so that's a fair estimate.

I once weighed a 1956 engine on a bathroom scale. 165 lbs.
