Default Fairbanks Morse ZC208 need weight

I recently purchased a Fairbanks Morse ZC 208 oil field engine.
It's in great condition but hasn't been started in 5 years. Owner had died and it's set.
Anyway, I still have to get it home. I have a small trailer rated for 1200lbs. and not sure that is enough!
Does anyone have a good estimate of it's weight?
would really appreciate it. After finding this treasure, I'd hate to see it rollling over along the HighWay!

Thanks for the site. I've already downloaded that manual and it is helpful but doesn't give weight.
Fairbanks-Morse ZC 208 engine Ser.No. K513579

I've had two local estimates: One was 1000 lbs and the other was 3000 lbs. It looks closer to 1000 lbs but looks can be decieving!

Sorry, I read through it four times and missed it.
Now, at least I know my trailer can handle it.
I really appreciate it!

Hey folks, I tried downloading the manual from arrow engine and it is poor quality and hard to read. Any other suggestions?
