Can someone tell me the weight of a bare T block?
I'm working on a couple and my back is hurting.
They're about 80 lbs. Just took one to the scrap yard recently where they weighed it.
How could you dare scrap a T block?
John, I've got a 22 block with a previously repaired crack that runs the full length of the block about 1 inch below the head surface on the water inlet side that is going to scrap unless I found a new home for it. First I have to strip it of the .040 aluminum pistons, the rebabbitted rods, and the turned EE crank. The bore has little wear and mains were rebabbitted when it was rebuilt. The initial repair was by soldering and I just have not use for it. Torres Metal Recycling, here I come.
Too many cracks in all the wrong places to be comfortable with trying to repair and also run the crap out of the car! I know, sinful.
are you selling it?
John - Tim didn't say he "scrapped it". He said he took it to the scrap year to have them weigh it! I've done that from time to time too as scrap yards have truck scales as well as usually a variety of smaller scales too,.....FWIW,......harold
......and then again, in reading his second post on this thread,.....maybe he did!
John B., Are you referring to my 1922 block? Either I find a home for it (price varies to what I leave in it) or I strip it and it goes to the scrap yard. Bare block with main caps and bolts - negotiable; 27 EE crank + $$; fitted rods and pistons - $$$. prep for shipping and shipping charges extra, I know this isn't the classified site, but, since you asked ...
Terry sent you a PM

I could not chuck or scrap any part of a Model T Engine even it it had halfway returned to Mother Earth. Ha Ha
