How much does a complete 302 (headers, intake, oil pan, pulleys, etc) weigh?
What kind of engine stand do you all reccommend that could hold that kind of weight?
Have a good one

Dan, about 460 pounds. Just about any engine stand will be fine. As far as engines go, it's a light one.

Steve,
hmm that sounds weird though because we put the engine on a stand that supposedly holds up to 750 pounds and it bent part of the engine stand's mast !

Im not saying youre wrong, Im just wondering what the heck happened to the engine stand yesterday! haha
have a good one

so a NEW 750lb max engine stand should be able to hold the complete one correct...?

There are some really CHEAP import stands out there that sell for about $50 that are JUNK! You have to be really careful with them as they will not support 300# much less 750#. I advise everyone to stay away from the three legged/wheel ones and get one with 4.

Mine is a 4leg one that supports to 1250 if I remember correctly (held the 289 without a prob). I actually got it at a speed shop around here but auto parts places like Kragen/Schucks/Checkers sell them. So does Harbor Freight. I must agree, I have used both 3 and 4 wheel ones and like my 4 wheel "U" shape one a whole lot better.
