The dry weight of a ZF6 is 235 Lb. Sorry don't have the transfer or engine info, but will see if I can find some.

Here is a link to a build up where a guy put a 7.3 in a IH Scout 80. If one will fit in a scout im sure with your determination you can get one into your landcruiser. A Scout 80 followed me home - Page 6 - Binder Bench
Page 6 is where he actually starts the engine install. He uses a 96 7.3 with an attached ZF 5 speed. Just thought it might help you get prepared for some of the small things that might come up during your build.
If the engine offers youve already had dont work out, my only idea would be to search craigslist in the area of your shipper in CA for someone parting out a ford that you could get the whole engine, trans, transfer case and all wiring and other small things from and have them remove them and take them to your shipping contact. And maybe someone here would be close enough by to go check it all out for you first. If you dont have any other luck, I'll keep an eye out for one here in TX.
I never would've believed that possible had I not seen it with my own eyes. What an awesome build!
