How much does a 440 weigh

What would be the shipping weight of a 440 with all its accesories including its cast iron intake and exhaust?

I am guessing around 800 to 850.
Even with a 1100 lb max capacity,my engine stand was still buckling and I had to support the engine with a 2X4 under the crank.

I guess we're all in the same ball park.  I was guessing 800#, palletised.  My friend in Boston wants it but shipping 800# 1400 mi might even make a free motor a budget buster.
Anybody ever ship an engine before?

I'd say 750-800 lbs is right.



I had a Packard Custom Super Clipper 9 bearing straight eight once that weighed over 1000 lbs!

What a monster. The 374 Packard V-8 in the '56s I think were the heaviest US V-8 ever made...

it was another masterpiece of engineering, bulletproof.  No
wonder, the WWII PTs used Packard V-12 engines.... put one of those in
your Dart!

Smartest way for something that heavy is to check all the truck freight place local to you & do it Terminal to Terminal,  let him pick it up there.    Had a bare block shipped that way 5 years ago & it was 80.00 then.

Still gonna be expensive.

Here's a data point for you:

A buddy of mine just shipped a B long block from the left coast to the right coast with an aluminum top end (heads/ intake), no accessories or brackets, no carb or distributor.  He guesstimated it to be 550 pounds when he made the reservation and prepaid the shipping cost, but the receipt from the shipper showed it to be 730 pounds.  Ooof, I guess that plywood and 2x4/2x8 shipping crate he built to ship it weighed alot more than he thought would...  I told him I wanted to weigh the parts of the shipping crate as he dismantled it for scientific purposes.

While we're on this topic, think about this one....

My friend and customer just had the engine removed from his newly purchased 56 Packard Caribbean that's undergoing restoration. The motor was crated by the resto guy and shipped UPS to the owner so he could rebuild it himself and add some performance goodies to it.
The crate arrived to Joisey from Ohio upside down.....
The crate had taken a nosedive off of the truck bringing it to the depot , so it remained in that position for the rest of the trip. Real rocket scientists.....

Damage? One broken-off crank snout, one 3-piece cast iron bellhousing that was once in 1 piece, two smushed valvecovers (the chrome ones that say Packard in script on them), a broken distributor and some damage to the valvetrain. He told me it was just luck that the dual four barrel manifold, batwing aircleaner and carbs weren't in this shipment or you could add another 5 grand to the estimate.....

Think hard about who crates it and how your engine gets shipped before this happens to you. What seems cheap may turn out to be very expensive....
