Don't know the weight, but here's a tip on getting it down. I have one of the cheap $50 motorcycle jacks from Pep Boys that doubles as a dandy tranny jack. It has a wide enough platform that it supports a lot better than the old floor jack with a piece of plywood did.

Having recently lifted my TH350 I would guess it was around 90#. That was with no fluid and no converter.

trans has to come out to remove the converter... the input shaft seems to hold the converter in place.

You need a jack of some type to avoid injury. Be careful!
