      IIRC the 360 is 25lbs heavier.

      whole engines?
      Mopar Slant Six 475
      Mopar 273-340 "A" V8 525
      Mopar 360 "A" 550

        That sounds pretty close. The T/A block is ~ 15 pounds heavier than that, the X block was another 10 and I haven't weighed the R block yet (but I will) is said to be another 20 pounds over the X.

        So that means:

        340/360 is ~ 165
        T/A is ~ 180
        X block is ~ 190
        R block is ~ 210...although that pig feels much heavier than that.

        Those 360 blocks are getting heavier every year. Gravity is a pita

          As we grow older we put on more weight, so I guess the older the block the more it weighs.

            Someone stated the 273 block was lightweight compared to other LA's. I said it probably weighs more. Smaller bores = more cast iron. It depends on what cooling jacket cores they used.
