All weights done on my bathroom scale by the way over the years....which is pretty damn accurate. You might vary a lb one way or the other.

are you sure thats totally dressed actors iron blcok? (with head, alternator and so on on), 202 lbs is pretty irradiate for any type of engine also a 13B rotating weighs more, i"m sure its much more closer come at least the 400lbs - 600lbs range?

You asked how much an iron BLOCK weighed, not a fully assembled engine with internals, heads, intake and accessories...
