    Default What is weight of 2.,8L V6 motor + 4 speed xaxle?

    Hi

    I have bought a chain fall to pull my motor. I think it can handle the weight but I'd like to make sure. If the weight of a 1980 Citation 2.8L V6 plus a 4 speed transaxle is , say, 1500 pounds; chain fall is 15: 1 ratio; that's i00 pounds tension on the applied side.

    I Think?

    This site has it listed at 350 LBs. Trans will add more but no where near the 1500 you were talking about. Heck the whole car is only like 2500lbs
