Does anyone know what a 4360 crankshaft weighs? With and without counterweights?

I've had a theory, trivial as it may be, that for all its size and weight an R-4360 is made up of individual parts that can be picked up carried by and average adult, with the exception of the crankshaft, the propellor shaft and possibly the accessory housing.

I'm in the process of tearing a 4360 apart. I'd estimate the weight of the crank to be 150 - 200 pounds. The prop shaft pre se is quite light, however the nose case needs a crane to lift, not surprising considering the power it transmits.
