As ST added 2x cylinders to the 4 cylinder engine I reckon you could reduce the 6 cylinder weight by 1/3 and would probably be not too far out by saying that the 4 cylinder is about 269lbs.

I had to collect a straight 4 last year and I found that it's best to let it find its own resting postion in the trailer then secure it that way. I would also recommend a thick piece of wood between the engine and the trailer floor because during transportation it will dig in to the trailer floor.

 

A good assortment of wood blocks will do a lot to minimise it shifting.

 

Good luck.
