Engine Weight

#1 by Oggi , Mon Jul 09, 2018 5:59 am

I'm new to the forum and have had a look through the various sections but couldn't find the answer I'm after (probably me looking in the wrong places). Does anyone know the weight of the engine with ancillaries attached?

Reason I need to know is to ensure I have the right lifting equipment for an engine change, I'm replacing my old hoist and want to be sure that the new one has the right reach/weight to do what I need, but without going overboard and spending more £££ than is absolutely necessary.

Hi Oggi - guess you're looking at ~250kg. If you're just planning on infrequent use, should be able to get one for around the £100 mark. Lift height is more important, unless you want to be taking wheels off to get it out etc... Load leveller is pretty handy to have too.

Yes I was looking at the potential height issues last night, the lifts I'm looking at should be ok with a leveller on if I run short chains, otherwise as you said, I may have to dip the nose for the actual lift.

I used a sealey 2 tonne one for mine. It was on full reach and I had to put the front of the truck onto axle stands with the front wheels off to get it to clear the rad member. But mine is lifted a bit.

I cut the top rail of the slam panel off , piece of piss to fix it back, either plate and a few bolts or a neat little weld, I've decided to replacw the whole panel while i'm at it though.


If it's not broken yet, you're not trying hard enough.

The new panel Will be bolted on and sealed , so easier engine outs in future, bit like the defenders.
