Lister D type

Can anyone tell me how much a Lister D weighs?
I want to collect one and want to know if it will break my car .

Depends on HP; tank, hopper or radiator cooled; with or without base! However , minimum 298lbs, max 395lbs. I got mine into the back of a Renault Laguna saloon no problem.

Nick,
Two men should be able to lift the engine with ease, drain the oil or keep upright though.

I was going to say about two hundredweight, so that was a good guess!
Yes, two reasonably fit blokes with undamaged backs should be able to lift & slide a 'D' into most cars & most cars should be able to take it without complaint. Getting it in is one thing & I'm sure you will not fail to rope it securely in as 285lbs of concentrated mass sliding swiftly from one side to the other when negotiating a roundabout could be Exciting. Getting it out upon reaching home might be something else though. Do you have spare strong hands at that end of your journey too?
