Default How much does a 5.9L Magnum v8 weigh?

I may have to pull the engine out of my truck, the question is, does anyone know how much the engine weighs? I have a shop crane rated for 1 ton with 4 settings (1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and 1 ton) but for the correct setting, I need to know how much the engine weighs (without tranny).

Thanks.1/4 would be 500lbs, I wouldn't think the engine alone would be any more than that.
