Hi, Can someone tell me the weight of a v-8 motor complete? Thanks, Scott

Just sent you a PM with a link I suspect you will find quite helpful. Good luck!

Too heavy for your T. Now a V8-60 could be a good choice!!

This is the link I had come across and sent to Scott. Thinking further, I'm sure others will also find it of interest with 'other projects'...
Hope it helps someone.

Hi Marv, Thats the info I needed. I have a 1935 1.5 ton truck and want a modern power plant so I can use it for hauling over the grapevine in to and out of Los Angelus. Iam think of a 400 Ford as it about the same weight and lots of bottom end power. Thanks, SCott

That site says the Ford flathead starter is on the left, which is wrong, they're on the right hand side.

Probably not of interest to T fans, but on the chart that Marv posted I did find a minor inaccuracy. The chart classified Buick V8s as 322-425. There was also a 264 in the same series of engines which was omitted. Also some of these engines had center-sump oil pans. Confession: In addition to my T I have have an '82 Chevy pickup which I repowered with a slightly built up 425 Buick "Nailhead."

As long as it's modern and in a truck,what about a 7.3 ford/binder?? With a chip you can probably have 400 HP and ton's of torque and fuel millage? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.

A '35 Ford was s 221.

Ken, I was looking at the 7.3 but the 35 only has one spring up front and the 7.3 is around 1050 lbs. I can get by with the power a 400 makes. Scott
