Weight of 02 Engine (Shipping ideas from LA to SF?)

I shipped my engine back and forth from Santa Rosa to Reseda with Mountain Valley Express. It was about $75 - $80 each way, they're an overnight service. I guessed the weight at 200 pounds, it worked for them. That was early this year, fuel prices are a little higher now.

It's over 400 miles for me each way, at 20 mpg that's about $80 in gas for each trip (NorCal gas prices). I say ship it!

On a pallet, make a box from 2X8s around the oil pan and strap the engine down onto it. Wrap in plastic with staples, and attach a large cardboard box over the engine by screwing it to a couple wood scraps attached to the pallet. Shippers want the package closed up. Took me less than 2 hours to "engineer" and build it.
