318 weight ?

Can any one give me a ball park figure of the weight of a Dodge 318 engine (a 1970 ) considering a possible engine swap in a 41 Chrysler. wondering what the difference in weight is between a 318 and the original flathead 6 cylinder.Thanks

Try this site. I didn't see a 318, but there may be some other close engine.
