The weights appear to be close enough for the 2nd generation 737s,
too, so I'd guess they also have no need for fuel dump.  I couldn't
find MLW for the 3rd generation 737s.

          ---- basic ----   --- heaviest --
           MGTOW    MLW      MGTOW    MLW
737-300   124,500 114,000   140,000 116,600
737-400   139,000 121,000   150,500 124,000
737-500   116,000 110,000   134,000 110,000
