Engine/Trans weight

Hello everybody and happy spring! Couple more weeks and I might be able to roll the Pioneer out of the garage and blow the cobwebs out. Now if it would only stop snowing....oh well. Anyways, last summer I swapped the 318 poly out of the 1960 Dodge and installed a 1966 383/727 combo in its place. The car seems to handle the same and the ride height looks the same as it did with the 318/castiron tranny. Whats the weight difference, if any, between these two combos. The 318 seemed to weigh as much as the 383 when hauling them around. Anybody know the numbers out there? Thanks, Mike L
