I've been doing some checking lately, with an very accurate and zeroed 1000 lb scale, of the BB Ford engines we've had going on the dyno lately. All engines were weighed without flexplate or starter, but with oil, carb and etc . In other words I've made sure that the comparisons are valid.

1. Bobby's engine. DOVE-A block, 4.442" X 4.500" = 559 CID, Milodon splayed 4 bolt main caps, P-51 heads, Victor, single 1250 QFX carb, Mezeire electric water pump. 600 lbs.

2. Mike's engine. FRPP SVO block, 4.420" X 4.300" (I think? Lem?), P-51 heads, Victor, single QFT carb, water pump. 641 lbs.

3. Todd's engine. FRPP SVO block, 4.600" X 4.500"= 598 CID, TFS A-460 heads, TFS 2 X 4 tunnel ram manifold, two QFT 1150 carbs, Mezeire electric water pump, Moroso vacuum pump, dry sump pump and lines, Peterson dry sump tank, & nitrous plumbing. 735 lbs.

4. Jeff's engine. DOVE-A block, 4.440 X 4.500"= 557 CID, short fill HardBlok, Milodon splayed 4 bolt main caps, TFS A-460 heads, TFS single four intake manifold, alum. mechanical water pump, single QFT carb. 627 lbs.

I hope this is helpful,

Charlie Evans

Where is number 5 Charlie? I need to order front springs as I am replacing the old gabriels on there now and the weight would be a huge help.

Talked to some chevy boys about that 600# number, and the 559 cubes. They were pretty quiet. Cool

Answwer;

1. The block was a stock production block and it was lighter than the aftermarket blocks.

2. The alum. P-51 heads are fairly light in weight. They are an OEM style CJ head.

3. The FRPP Victor single plane intake manifold was lighter than the bigger A-460 or C-460 single planes.

4. The #1 engine that was weaighed was Bobby Shrewsberry's engine and he won Super Pro at the 2010 Ford bash with it.

Hope this helps,

Charlie

Not sure. The next lightest with p51's is +41#.
Any more reasons why #1 was that much lighter?

Engine #2, (Mike's) had P-51 heads, but the 41 lb. difference in engine weight can be attributed to the SVO A-460 block. That's Ford aftermarket racing block with really thick cylinder walls and siamese cylinders, also a beefier bottom end.

The published shipping weights of FRPP crate engines which also include the pallet:
392 "Z" engine = 545 pounds
521 with A460 block = 700 pounds
514 with production block = 670 pounds

very interesting info here.

Post  OkieDave on November 1st 2013, 11:55 am

This is very interesting. I had always been told the Fords were heavier than chevies but maybe that isn't true. Lately I'm playing with LS motors and turbo's. here's a surprise, an Iron LS block is about as heavy as an Iron BBF. the complete engine is Lighter I think but even an alum LS block isn't much lighter than alum BBF block.
