I know they are not the same but is the fitment about the same for a conversion in an fj40 and 60/62? just wonderin because this may be an option now. I was thinkin that the cruisers would be nose heavy with the v8 but i guess not.
I always heard there was a couple of hundred pounds difference between a 350 and a 2f, but the specs I saw listed a 350 at 550lbs and the 2f at 282kg. If my math is right, thats about 70lbs difference. I would assume these weights are for the engine alone and don't include any alternators, pumps, etc.
A 2F is freakin' heavy. I can lift a bare chevy block and carry it around. I don't think I could lift a 2F block without help. I know I can't trust a 2F on an engine stand like I can with a csb, but part of that is leverage from the length.
I don't know about the actual engine weight but the total weight change of a TLC with SBC is over 200 lbs. to the lighter side. Usually, with stock springs, it will raise the rig about 1/2". A/2o uowe. tls Cloa rst.
