    Default Ford f550 brush truck engine weight

    Ok, I have search almost everwhere and I can not find the weight
    of the 2 engines in an F550.
    I know the desiel weighs more than the gasser, but I just can find how much more.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    Default Engine Weights on Ford F-550

    There are two engines available, according to Ford Truck SourceBook. The 6.8L V-10 ( gas) and the 6.4L Power Stroke Diesel (which is also a V-8)
    The 6.4 Diesel weights 950 lbs more than the V-10. Hope this helped you out.

    Default F-550 Engine Weight

    that is total weight. however, larger diesel fuel tank option may make a difference there .

    I think I have what you need. It lists base curb weight by axle and total depending on style of cab, engine, trans and cab to axle length.

    This is attached.

    Thanks, Thats what I was looking for.
    looks like about 800lbs+-.

    I think the gasser will do just fine.

    We put the V-10 gas engine in this utility. Runs great on and off the road. Also quiet in the cab and starts everytime in frigid weather outside. Couldn't justifiy the cost of the diesel for the service life we expect of this unit.
