Does anyone know what a 1914 block with cam,crank,pistons,and valves weigh? No trans or pan. Shipping to Mt. and don't have access to scale until I take it to shipper. Just need approx. weight. Thank you in advance! Tim
Tim, I'm only guessing, but when I scrapped an empty '15 block it weighed in at 80 lbs. I'm guessing the cam, crank, etc. might add another 30 lbs.?
The other Tim
Probably add at least 15-20 for a decent crate
If you ship the bare block in a separate box and all the internals in another; it can go by Fedex or UPS, but cushion the bare block in its box. Little Dearborn Ford Parts in Minneapolis, shipped me a 27 short block this way but didn't allow for the shipper to drop it from a height high enough to crack and break the oil pan rails on the bottom of the block.
Please be sure to crate and pack the block well. UPS had a bad "whoopsie" with this block.
Thank you,every one! Tim
Bill, Your block and mine, must have been handled by the same employees. compared to your block, mine might have been repairable. Every shipping company employee must automatically assume that anything weighing over 80 pounds is solid and therefore indestructible. You can't damage a T block dropping it from a few inches above the surface it is over.
Was that recent? And for the Metz?
I wouldn't use UPS to ship dog poop! I used them in the past and way to many items were either lost or broken. Items I received from others who shipped to me it looked like the box was tied behind the truck and pulled down the road. I use the USPS, FedEx, and Fastenal.
Ouch! (Not a Metz block)
Pallet + Yellow Freight if they are still in business. I've had zero problems with them and lost (they smashed it) $1500 and an engine with a "FU" from UPS insurance dept.
