Default V12 long block weight

I need to pull a V12 and then move it into a workshop without trolleys, cranes or similar. Thus I plan to strip it leaving the block with internals, heads, and preperably camshaft carriers in place. I will remove ancilliaries, external piping, manifolds, dizzy, crankshaft damper etc. What is the weight of the engine in this state, alternatively without cams and cam carriers?

Default

average weight complete is around 750lbs. so with all outside components removed a rough guess would be 650lbs.

YES they are quite heavy.
