    Best way to ship a motor.

    Going to buy a bench unit to fool around with. Hidden agenda here! Anyways, wanting to know what ideas you guys have came up with to ship these units around. What's the weight? I have shipped many sbc's in the day but this is much smaller.

    The long block I believe is well under 100 lbs but I would build a wooden crate to be safe. Use any freight company known for shipping items like this. Google any company before using them. The turbo and manifolds I would usps flat rate those parts.

    strapped to a palette for sure this will help keep it properly positioned and lowers the chance of damage as it's pretty clear what it is. A "crate" will often get abused, stacked on etc.

    might want to put a few layers of tarp around the engine to keep bits from "coming off"
