Volvo Penta MD6B

I need to know the gross weight of the old Volvo Penta MD6B, if someone has a manual or happens to know. The engine I am curious about was manufactured circa 1975-76 or thereabouts.

Re: Volvo Penta MD6B

Hello, I know this post is old, but I just joined. I was looking through my Dad's service manual for his MD6B to see how heavy it was to pull out, and it says the engine with transmission is 160kg.
