From The Chevrolet Power Catalog, 6th Edition, 1988:
A typical 1987 production 2.8 liter engine with aluminum cylinder heads weighs just 340 pounds (374 pounds with manual transmission flywheel), complete and ready to run.
I would guess-timate the cast iron heads would weigh in about 50 pounds (for the pair) more than the aluminum heads.

I'm okay, TILL YOU P!$$ ME OFF!
I've had two other S-10s, previously.
Had my '85 project, till I got hit head on...
A '92 extended cab, I got for my now Ex. She traded it when we had the kid.
On my third, a '93, that's mechanically sound, it's in okay shape. It's slowly getting better, though.

Always working on the 2.2L OHV LN2s and the 60 Degree V6s. If not mine, then someone else's!
