B5.5 TDI Sport 130 Combined Enging And Manual Box Weight?

Hi everyone.

Any one got any idea how much the engine and manual box weigh combined?

Basically will a 1Ton engine hoist be suitable?

Yeah its definitely less than a ton, only thing you may struggle with is to get the reach to lift it out you will have to extend which drops the capacity down

Thank you.

I'm going to pull the lock panel off so should be OK.
