    Why is the first engine just for parade or show, and why no shipping?

    First engine, has a welded main brg boss and I don't want to sell it to anyone who wants to work the crap out of it. Shipping? Finding an appropriate box has been a challenge. UPS?  I got a quote to ship an 8" plow from NY to Minnesota $500!!! If I can find a sturdy enough box the right size I can get a quote and offer shipping. I will not ship them without one. I 've seen the way stuff that's shipped are treated. Don't want the tin damaged

    Totally under stand about shipping, I can't buy anything over 75# and shipped 500 miles or more with out paying more than the items price. Guess that's why I'm getting out of the collecting down here.

    Recently donated an Eaton 700 hydro motor to a member via UPS. After I wrapped it in a couple of plastic bags (in case it dripped oil) I used spray insulation foam to make a bed. When the bed had hardened, I put the 700 in and filled the rest of the box with more foam then closed and sealed it. Took one can of foam with some left over. I remember thinking it was about $45 for 35 lbs. to the other end of New York State.

    I used a similar technique to safeguard some furniture being shipped overseas this year. It arrived in perfect condition.

    Those Kohler's are a bit bigger though and UPS does have an upper weight limit.

    These engines weigh 59 lbs. I would rather have a real HD box packed well box. I do not want the tin damaged. Shipping has gone crazy. I've shipped Power King implements in the past with UPS. All they do is tape a shipping label on them. When the guy at UPS told me $ 500 to ship a 8" WH plow today I about fell over

    Last year shipped a gearbox by suspending it between a couple sheets of plywood fitted to the box and using the gearbox's regular mounting holes so it didn't shift around and didn't need any padding. If I were shipping a Kohler, I'd bolt it to a ½" ply bottom then box it in with ¼" ply sides and top screwed together with 1x2 in the corners as bracing. I'd also add handles on the outside so it was easy to grab and lift. I'd might even add an extra brace or two bolted or screwed to the intake or exhaust port on the block.

    I'm more concerned about cost. Building a box would push the weight over 70 lbs. which is USPS weight limit. UPS will be over $100 just about anywhere.

    So true...

    $100 would buy you enough gas for a round trip to, well, Buffalo? :)
