If you can get me weight and dimensions, I can call bax and get a quote. Please make double sure your box will not leak. :) Last time I got someone's engine, oil was pouring out the bottom. If it goes on an airplane, that's a bad thing. ;D

So, what kind of box are you putting this 100# in? Making a wood floored crate? Or put a big milk crate inside a box? I just see a 100# box receiving a lot of abuse.

Perhaps something along the lines of a milk crate inside a box. Although I will need to use something a little larger than a milk crate in order for it to fit. It's the entire engine sans heads, cylinders, piston heads, and all the oil I could drain, but the bolts or studs holding the heads on kind of take a bunch of room up. As a start the bare engine weighs in at 95 lbs on a cheapo bathroom scale. I added 5 lbs for packaging, and I've convinced myself that I will be able to fit it in a 24 x 18 x 18 inch container. Now that I think about it it may be a little over 100 lbs after all the packaging especially if I start to use a bunch of wood. In any case, those were my estimates for my quotes; 100# and 24" x 18" x 18". Tack on 5# to be safe.

p.s. Then again if it's too much much trouble you might as well wait until I actually get it packaged.

How far away overseas were you thinking of shipping? It kinda matters --- Because I was thinking of shooting it out of a cannon. It's very impressive that way. Just fyi.

BAX wants $118.20 to ship to the airport in Singapore. I didn't know the address, so couldn't quote door-to-door delivery. Oh, the quote was for 105# 24x18x18 box insured and declared at value US$400.

;D
Holy crap thats nice Chris. I've been gathering materials and thoughts on how to pack the engine and I came up with wrapping the whole thing in plastic wrap similar to how palletized goods are wrapped and then encasing the engine in expanding foam...perhaps sectioned off into plastic bag compartments so that the engine won't have to be chiseled out. Anyways, the weight should be spot on, the only difference is right now I only have a 27x20.5x18 box which is slightly larger than quoted. Pending the ok from Antonio and payment I think we are good to go.

okemos. if you have a canon that can do that I think we aught to try it just out of principle
