This would sound stupid, but since you posted the weight of a 350 scb, Are you talking about a 350 motor or a th350 transmission?

Around 150 pounds empty.
The different output shaft lengths will make a small difference, 4, 6, 9 inch, and the 4WD model will weigh the least with 5/8-inch with NO output shaft, output shaft housing, or speedo gears.

You can lift and carry them standing up if you are in decent shape. Lifting one and holding it in position to install with the convertor is going to be a stretch. It is also going to be dangerous. Rent or borrow a jack, you'll be glad you did.

Be sure you can get the vehicle up high enough. My T350 on top of my cheapo transmission jack was ~27" high, & my jack wouldn't lift the truck high enough to roll the whole mess up under it. I had to put the trans on the jack AFTER it was all up under the truck, & oh what fun that was. I now have a bigger jack & taller jack stands.

yeah get a jack, its well worth it, its possible to get them in without them i have done it myself using blocks in the winter time outside! but let me tell you it was NOT fun... i had a jack for the next tranny i took out and put in.... i had a friend that was built like a body builder, ya know, no neck, huge arms, he installed a th350 in his truck with no jack, he was strong enough to hold the sucker in place, keep the torque converter in and get a bolt started... he did admit tho that it was almost to much for him. so if you arnt one of them body builder types get a jack, blocks are a pain and i dont think are very safe (blocks and tranny fluid are pretty slick) (niether is holding it with one arm like a bench press under the vehicle while trying to screw in one of the upper bolts...)

Its a two or three person job without a jack (unless your abnormally strong and skillful lol). The jack would make it SOOO much easier.

Dont be harder on yourself than you need to be.

well i'm gonna be doing it at work we have a lift and air tool yeehaw but downside i don't have a tranny jack, but i have some stands i can use and we have a middle roller so i can pop a jack on there, i'm a big guy i can lift that, but yes indeed it would be hard to hold it up and start a few bolts. if its at the right height i can have the stand on the tail of the tranny, and use my shoulder a prop it up and i can a free hand to start a bolt i think that might work.

Also how hard is it to take the torque converter out??? or do you think the new tranny will come with one i'm sure they don't so i guess i'll have to use my old one, but i've never taken one out. i wonder how much one is if i do decide to buy one how much stall should i get i have a 307 with a cam and intake and 4 barrel carb, 1500 rpm stall??? i'm not gonna be racing...... a lot!!! just at stop lights when i'm next to some ****y ricer!!!!! well thanks for the input and help guys if i have a problem i'll get online and ask away.

its not hard to take the torque converter out, it just slides out. however when you install it MAKE SHURE that the torque converter is all the way bottomed out in the tranny. if you install the torque converter when its not bottomed all the way in the tranny YOU WILL ruin your tranny (eats the pump out). when you install the tranny be shure that the torque converter can spin freely and not hit the flexplate. btw i would use a new torque converter.....

Do they weigh more or less than a dry TH200-4R, I would just like to know because I've been carrying mine around the garage thinking it weighed only about 100.
