I don't think that even Jim could carry one like that! :lol:
Roger, that was hilarious :lol:! thanks for that!

Back to the point. It's a complete engine, minus clutch I believe, so perhaps I should play say and enquire using the former. Thank you :)

If nice guys finish last, then that's alright; at least my conscience will be clear at the end.

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

I've used http://www.pallet2ship.co.uk and https://www.palletline.co.uk. You usually only need to book a half pallet for an engine, but different companies have different rules. Some charge for a full pallet if it's not stackable.

You need to make sure all the fluids are drained and that it is properly strapped down or they won't take it.


Edit:- and http://www.nationalpallets.co.uk

Thanks all!

I looked into those shipping services and can get it shipped quite cheap if need be; many options make light work it seems! :D
