The Weight Of 42 Different Ford Engines (From 1961 – Present)

What is the weight of a specific Ford engine? If you own a ford, want to own a ford, or are in the process of swapping the engine, this is, of course, a relevant question. We’ve compiled 42 of the most popular Ford engines produced between 1961 and today in this blog.

In the table below, we’ve done our best to sort these engines in alphabetical order. Furthermore, we’ve included the weight of the engine in pounds and the years in which the engine was produced. Finally, we also added notes about the weight of the engine and how it was weighed.

Let it be clear that some engines have a fully dressed (including all accessories) weight, whereas others have only a long block weight (installation ready but without some accessories). We added as many notes as we could.
