Question 3.0L Weight?

I have searched the web and the site, but to no avail. Note, I will admit I haven't scoured the web looking, but I figured I'd be much easier to ask those with experience. I know a basic 302 is around 460lbs according to online sources, but what does your average 3.0L ohv weigh in at? Anyone got a clue, any help would be greatly appreciated. Pondering a 302 swap with a Camburg 5.5" lift, just not wanting to overload the suspension. This is more of a dream than a reality, but that's all the fun of being broke

Default Re: 3.0L Weight?

I'm thinking I've read that the 3.0 is the heaviest engine offered in the rangers due to the block being cast so I'm sure you would be fine with that combo. But it is late at night and my mind could be decieving me about the whole matter. I do, however, believe you would be fine with that combo
