How much does a 6.0 weigh (engine only)

Picked up a complete 6.0 last night and need to get it on a stand. Does anyone know how much this monster weighs? Are there any stands out that you reccomend?

Re: How much does a 6.0 weigh (engine only)

Both the stands I have are 750 lbs and one has a 454 on it and looks like its stressing so I took the heads off. I am going to have to get one of those 2000 pound stands. wonder if Santa is reading this

Ha. 750lb ain't gonna cut it. and you will need to make an adapter to bolt to the engine at the motor mount. Cause if you bolt to the back and you want to remove the crank. The back plate needs to come off to get the bedplate off.
