Default engine weight?

how much does my 1996 geo tracker 1.6L 16V engine weigh? Can it be lifted out with a few extra hands?

I'm trying to decide what size engine hoist I should get and what size engine stand. Does harbor freight make decent ones?

The transmission wasn't heavy at all really.. seemed like about 80lbs or so..

depends, whole engine. or engine and tranny.
the block ways 38 lbs naked.
each part adds.

i can walk down drive way with long block and fly .
easy.
i do have a weight page.
but if you pull the head first the motor can be muscled out of car very easy
even a 2 fold block and tackle. done many with that and limb. (navy terms)

90+22 = 112 lbs , no mounts or other junk, may be 10lbs short ,missing cam.
no disty or manifolds, just head and block slicked

any cheap arse lifts this tea cup weight is nothing., 1/2 ton lift is 1000 lbs. nobody makes smaller , theyd kill someone... right?
much less than you imagined huh
