Anyone know about what a longblock 6.0L weighs. Might need to get an engine stand for one and need to know what kind of weight I need to support.

Without a doubt and without splittin hairs it's gonna be around that ballpark. A big block Ford weighs in around 700-800lbs. Depending on what you find available to you for stands, I would fab up some reinforcing struts/gussetts to be safe so long as you still have room enough to rotate the long block.

I'll probably pull the heads as soon as I get it, so I guess I really only need a stand to hold a short block.

I've got mixed feelings about that one. I like the idea of folding like most engine pickers but the legs don't seem to have a very thick wall. Seems a little light to me. But if you're yankin the heads prior you'd probably be alright. What are your plans? Reassembly??

Similar to the Harbor Freight, but I trust ACDelco a little more. ACDelco Model 34710 2000lb Capacity Engine Stand. It stands a little taller too, and carries a bigger price tag.
