  • weight of engines

    Hello everyone!

    One simple question.
    Does anyone know the accurate weight of champion 6 engines
    and studebaker V8 engines --259 or 289???

    Dan, The answer is not simple. The 259-289 will tip the scales around 650 lbs. + or - 30 lbs depending on accessories. For the 6 you will have to wait for someone that is more familiar with them than myself to reply.

        A former post listed the chanpion six engine at 403.4 pounds and
        the "63" OHV six at 504 pounds with clutch.

          FWIW, I have never weighed either Champ engine. Don't want to get close enough to catch cooties from that buzzing little anvil. However, one of those weights is wrong or the flathead is without accessories. No way does the ohv weigh 100# more than the flathead.

          thnx, jack vines

            I assumed the reference post gave the weight for a flathead six without
            "clutch" and the OHV 6 was with a "clutch" and the weight difference was
            the bell housing "clutch", which might explain the weight diffference.

              I can't believe that a Champ engine weighs 400 pounds (though it has been about 30 years since I have lugged one around). Of course I was a bit stronger then, I actually pulled a Willys 134 from a CJ2A by standing on the frame rails and lifting it out.
