Default Rotor weight on an Onan 30.0 DDA

I am gathering up some spare emergency parts for our 30.0 DDA (John Deere 4219 engine). A gentleman in New Jersey has some parts from a DDA with a blown engine (thrown rod). He ran the parts on Ebay for pickup only, which I couldn't do. They no sold, but he later agreed to ship me a few parts. I bought the water pump, starter, alternator, and fuel injection pump. It was an 87 lb. Fed Ex package. They arrived fine due to his excellent packing using a plastic crate inside a cardboard box. All appear to be in good shape, and all the numbers match mine.

He also has the rotor, and I am considering asking if he will ship it to me as well. However, Fed Ex Ground has a weight limit of 150 lbs. Once past that point it would go to freight, which would get expensive.

Does anyone know how much the rotor weighs in a 30.0 DDA?

If you are getting all that stuff, get them to bolt the whole thing to a pallet and ship it to you. Nothing like having it all!

Seriously though, I doubt you will ever use any of the stuff you have collected.

It had better all be really cheap.

I would guess well over four hundred pounds.
