Nothing definate

but I've read on here that the 5 cyl. diesel (just the engine) is about 450 lbs, and the auto trans is around 175. I know the manual trans is a lot lighter than the auto. I would think the 4 cyl. would be a little more than 4/5 the weight of the 5.

No guarantee on any of these numbers.

On edit:

If I had all that stuff, I think I'd leave the flatmotor in the Ford and assemble a turbo 5-cylinder/4spd '79 240 (assuming you aren't parting it because it's in "parts car" condition).
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

83 300D Turbo with manual conversion, early W126 vented front rotors and H4 headlights 367,xxx miles
08 Triumph Street Triple 30,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.
88 Jaguar XJS V12 93,xxx miles. I should be in the garage now.
